Douglas Garner


A "recovering" Fortune 50 Human Resources manager (SPHR), Doug realized that the ‘conventional HR wisdom' of the past did not guarantee the right fit in executive selection nor any guarantees of superior performance after the hire.

Titles and previous job experience on a resume, along with the traditional interview process and often poorly defined candidate job requirements, frequently leads to performance disappointment and/or high turnover once the candidate joins the firm. In addition to Doug’s Science of Selection work on the behalf of our clients, he is responsible for oversight and quality management of Smart Work's operations. Doug holds a BA from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee.
