Douglas E. Tate “Doug” joined the Army directly out of high school. He served with distinction for nine years including time in a special infantry unit where he saw action on the front lines.
Doug began his military career as an infantry soldier. He then reenlisted and studied electronics and radio repair. As he progressed, he learned satellite communication which later turned into data center engineering and networking.
Doug’s military service helped him become a critical thinker and shaped his entrepreneurial spirit. The experiences helped him grow into a strong leader through perseverance, commitment, and problem solving. These attributes led to his founding of Alpha Technologies in 2000, a service-disabled veteran-owned small business headquartered in Hurricane, WV with a global data center located in South Charleston, WV. The firm is a business technology focused company providing comprehensive solutions that allow clients to focus on growing their business while Alpha manages their technology.
