The Beckley Group exists to help organizations realize their vision by helping people to realize theirs. In our relationship with clients, we teach and tailor best practices in management to their unique circumstances and business environment. The result is measurable increases in mission impact, productivity, morale, and team engagement.

The purpose of The Beckley Group is to improve a business’s performance through people. Virtually every organization has what we call a performance gap – its actual performance in relation to its potential performance or what it is capable of achieving.  Performance is usually measured in financial terms but can also be measured in other ways such as quality of life for the leaders or employees.


Douglas Scott Beckley, a native Las Vegan, founded The Beckley Group in 2001. Under his leadership, The Beckley Group has created success and boosted profitability for numerous well known Southern Nevada organizations from a variety of industries including construction, banking and finance, law, gaming, real estate, retail and the non-profit sector.

Doug has been the owner of a number of prosperous businesses including the most successful multi-center UPS Store franchise in Nevada.  His franchises have received a multitude of awards and were ranked in the top one percent in the world for total revenues.

Doug is past Chair of the Nevada Community Foundation, a 80 million dollar public foundation. Mr. Beckley was also a licensed preacher in the Episcopal Diocese of Nevada. Doug has personally supported a number of Nevada charities over the years.  His donation to the Meadows School made possible the school’s gymnasium, which bears his name.  In 2000, he established a philanthropic fund that benefits a number of local nonprofit organizations.

In addition to his tenure with the Nevada Community Foundation, Doug is past President of the Las Vegas Southwest Rotary, a Board member of The Las Vegas Executives Association, board member of Las Vegas-Clark County Library District Foundation, past Vestry member of Grace in the Desert Episcopal Church, past Treasurer of the National Society of Fundraising Executives, Advisory Board Member of AIDS Action International, founding Board Member of the Nevada Planned Giving Roundtable, a Paul Harris Fellow and a member of the Nevada Development Authority and Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce.
