Doug Jentzsch '10
Doug Jentzsch graduated from Westminster’s MBA program in 2010 and most recently worked as Marketing Director for Blendtec in Orem, Utah. At Blendtec he oversaw domestic and international marketing. Before that, he spent seven years as Director of Partnership Marketing at Access Development. Through hard work, dedication, and perseverance, he was able to develop professionally, but luck and good mentors played a large role as well. He exudes this legacy of mentoring to his work, where he says in addition to daily responsibilities he actively works to mentor those he supervises.
Both critical and creative thinking are key to his success, as he constantly evaluates month results and team accomplishments, analyzing the work his team is doing and how to improve their processes through data gathering, brainstorming and strategic planning. He says the ability to adapt, strategize, and collaborate through leadership and teamwork is integral to his work, showing him that “the skills used in the classroom often translate directly to the workplace.” His time at Westminster taught him that to change the world, you have to start with yourself, your family and your community - ideals that he showcases in his life through environmental consciousness and speaking out against unethical decisions in his everyday life.
