As a software engineer, the senior partner at Mckinsey & Company, Point 72 Asset Management president, Doug Haynes is sort of a jack of all trades in the business world.
However, Doug Haynes has reinvented and reinvigorated himself as his latest evolution of Doug Haynes as a consultant.
President of the Council, a group of business advisors that work with top CEOs to manage and enhance their businesses, Doug has led an exciting business life.
Quick to give credit to others wherever he goes, Doug gives high marks to the faculty members starting at the University of Virginia’s Darden Graduate School of Business, whose wonderful graduate program orientated the exceptionally gifted engineer towards a business career.
Doug credits those faculty members at the Darden Graduate school with providing him with a first-rate business education.
Next, Doug is extremely laudatory about his former associates at McKinsey & Company, where he spent 22 years for the company and found that McKinsey & Company opened the entire business world to him with exciting adventures and extremely talented colleagues.
Nevertheless, Doug also gives great credit to his father who provided him with an excellent foundation for success in life by teaching him two principles
- Work is its own reward
- Since you need to work in life, spend the majority of that working lifeworking with the best and the brightest.
Point 2 is what ultimately led Doug to consult with Presidents and CEOs and top echelon business leaders at the Council, a group of advisors operating out of New York City which is perhaps the leading consulting agency in the nation.
Besides consulting, Doug, again perhaps due to the fantastic education of his father, is also involved actively in charity work, in particular, efforts that enhance education, assist veterans, and work to fight poverty.
Doug currently serves on the board of directors of the Robin Hood Foundation, which aims to alleviate poverty in New York City. The Cohen Veterans Network, which provides mental health services for vets, and Camp Southern Grown, which allows underprivileged children to experience a week of intensive, “away from the city” camping and adventure.
Doug is married and lives a fulfilling life with his wife Latrice in Scarborough, New York when he is not traveling near and far to serve as a consultant.
