Doug founded Peebles Creative Group in 1997 with dark brown hair and the vision to build a creative resource unlike any other – one that focused on truth and communicating the value consumers could expect from clients, that serves by understanding the customers clients are trying to attract, and was dedicated to establishing long-term relationships one project at a time.
He is as committed to team members as he is to our clients. Doug provided a firm, values-based foundation that attracted excellent and dedicated people who embraced his vision and brought it to life. He serves with compassion and a well-hidden sense of humor, and takes great pride in the number of years clients and associates have remained affiliated with Peebles Creative Group.
He’s never been big on awards, but that won’t stop us from giving a shout-out for the long list of Addys, Rubys, Gold Medals, and Certificates of Excellence that demonstrate the agency’s creative innovation and span a wide range of industries serving diverse marketplaces across the country. Given his unwavering commitment to do the ‘right’ thing and to grow a successful business with honesty and integrity, Doug holds the 2005 Better Business Bureau of Central Ohio’s Business Integrity Award as the firm’s greatest achievement.
Doug is always honored to share insights as a guest speaker, is pleased to serve on the Better Business Bureau Center for Character Ethics’ National Programming Committee, COSI’s Community Board, and is honored that the firm has been recognized for its “best-practices” as a Better Business Bureau Torch Bearer.
He has also been featured in a wide range of local, regional and national publications and served as an Adjunct Professor at the Ohio University College of Communications’ E. W. Scripps School of Journalism.
When he’s not doing all of the above, you’ll find him navigating the family minivan through the roundabouts of Dublin with wife Carolyn, daughters Lynn and Erin, and son Aidan.
