Doug Walker is a vital part of both the Verification and the New Business Development teams for Sumday Vacations. In his capacity as a verifier, he goes through all the paperwork for a transfer, making sure everything is complete and in order, for submission to the resort. As part of the New Business Development Team, he works as an initial contact and liaison with clubs and resorts, to answer questions and help determine what their needs are and how he can best assist them.
Educated at Phillips University as a business major, early on he found he had an affinity for sales, but it wasn’t until he was twenty years into his career that he discovered the vacation industry, where he found a home, feeling the importance of encouraging people to take quality time with each other and their families. Given the opportunity to join the Sumday Vacations staff, he immediately saw the benefit not only to owners desiring to divest themselves of a timeshare that was no longer of use to them, but to the vacation clubs and resort sales departments who needed a reliable, "no drama" transfer company to process the properties they’d taken in on trade.
With twelve years in the vacation industry in sales and administration already in his experience, he has now been with Sumday more than two years, and sees the best years still ahead.
Outside of his position with Sumday Vacations, he’s been a proud Navy dad, patiently awaiting the day he’ll become a proud grandfather. His favorite pastime is trying to put a little white ball into a little hole. Did anyone say golf?...Call me!
