Doug Cofer brings a wealth of marketing, sales, and executive management experience to Four Columns, which he founded in 2007. Holding an MBA from the Hankamer School of Business at Baylor University, he spent a decade as a top-producing sales executive in the media and tourism sectors. His management experience includes stints as the CEO of a 10 million dollar golf club and director of sales for both a city magazine and a year-round mountain resort. His strategic vision, people-centric management style, leadership, and expertise in all aspects of marketing focused on bottom line results are key factors to his success.

Doug’s highest priorities are his wife Christine and their five amazing children, Cameron, Katie, Miles, Kensi, and Luke. Along with their dog Griffin, it is quite a houseful. He is an avid supporter of Baylor University and its athletic programs as well as being an active member of First United Methodist Church in Waco.

Veronica Campbell

Graphic Designer

[email protected]

Veronica is going into her senior year at Baylor and originates from right outside of Houston, Texas. She will be getting her BFA in Studio Art with a concentration in Graphic Design. Veronica’s favorite part of design is the research aspect and incorporating different mediums, like painting and drawing, into something that is rendered on the computer, because it allows you to be more involved in the designing part. Not only does she enjoy the art of designing, but she also loves photography. In her spare time she enjoys dancing and being a part of the local church community at Antioch Community Church. Veronica is usually up for any adventure and trying new things, especially if it involves traveling or gets the adrenaline pumping… skydiving is a must on her to-do list.

Shannon Graessle

Content Strategist

[email protected]

As a believer in potential and a sucker for a well-crafted sentence, Shannon plays the role of Content Strategist on the 4C team. From curating social media feeds to brainstorming copy for our next project, you can find Shannon working away in the office with a smile on her face and a Raspberry Tea on her desk. Some of her favorite tasks consist of dreaming alongside clients of what could be, and seeing those dreams come into reality.

An Austin native gone Waco-lover, Shannon can tell you about every hidden gem our beloved city has to offer, and on the weekends you can usually find her hiking with her husband and pup, perusing a local shop, or cheering on Baylor – her alma mater, where she majored in Professional Writing and minored in Leadership Studies.

With never-ceasing enthusiasm, Shannon is ready to create engaging and informative content and go above and beyond for the 4C team and our clients.
