Veteran Staff Sergeant Doug Quitmeyer is co-founder and CEO at YOUR6 out of Austin, TX.
Mr. Quitmeyer was a member of U.S. Special Operations, where he was a sniper team leader, squad leader, as well as a liaison instructor to other military units. While in his instructor role, he was responsible for developing, auditing and updating training curriculum, as well as training in tactics, techniques and procedures in a Land Warfare environment. Mr. Quitmeyer executed multiple deployments in support of Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom.
Following his discharge, Mr. Quitmeyer became an instructor in firearms tactics for police officers and military units. Eventually, he presented his resume to a state workforce commission, which recommended positions as an exterminator or security guard based on his military skills, a verdict that left Quitmeyer disenchanted and disheartened with how Veterans are perceived in the civilian workplace.
His experience left a burning desire to change how people—especially Veterans—are hired. As a natural teacher and coach, YOUR6 provides Mr. Quitmeyer an outlet to change people’s awareness of their own capabilities and potential, a trait born during his military career and which extends into his work as a civilian.
Quitmeyer has a bachelor’s degree from St. Edward’s University in Interdisciplinary Studies, with a focus on business management and communication.
Michael has an extensive sales and marketing background. He founded his company Haynes Marketing a commercial printing brokerage firm in 1988 which serviced such clients as State Farm Insurance, Danka-Omnifax and numerous charitable organizations and political campaigns. After 25 years in brokering, the industry changed and he went to work for Capital Printing, a large commercial printing firm in Austin, Texas and has clients worldwide.
Through his many years of networking he has found he has a talent for bringing the right people together at the right time for the right projects. He brings with him a positive attitude on every new venture.
Through Michael’s adventurous spirit and love of competition Millennium Skydiving Project was formed. The 2 4-way teams went on to win several Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals in the Texas Skydiving League and Americas Cup in the 7 years he competed before retiring from skydiving in 2003.
Michael has found his primary purpose is to be of service. He has sat on the board of CforR for the past 5 years and is on the Austin Gives engagement committee and committees of others as well as being an Executive/President level member of the Austin Chamber of Commerce for 9 years.. He attended the Round Rock Leadership Program in 2009 and sat on the Leadership Committee from 2009 – 2011.
