Our Philosophy

Presidio Sports Management embodies the belief that the following core operating principles are the only way to serve our clients, athletes, teams and the "industry" in general.

  • Integrity (read: total unabashed, yet tactful, honesty...always)

  • Loyalty (read: we have our clients' backs...for life)

  • Hard work (read: willing to really, really work hard)

  • Intelligence (read: we know what we know and, more importantly, know what we don’t know…see integrity above)



Chris Douglas, Esq.
Founder & President

Presidio Sports Management started as a dream, literally. After months of researching and hearing that it was a great idea from friends, colleagues, complete strangers on the street and that "genius" at the Apple Store...PSM was born. 

After working as a civil rights attorney and clinical law professor for over ten years, Chris decided to make the dream come true and combine his passion for endurance sports with his passion for helping others. Chris is a triathlete, cyclist and trail runner. Whether training for the next ridiculous endurance challenge on the schedule (double century ride in Death Valley? Done that!) or simply the next mountain to run up at dawn, Chris lives for the challenge. 

Chris has worked in the endurance sports industry for over nine years and represents athletes, sport teams and brands in all aspects of sports law and consults on race/event management and sports marketing. Chris's expertise in these areas has been featured in print and online publications including Outside Magazine, Ultrarunning Magazine, Triathlete Magazine and the San Francisco Chronicle and has been heard on NPR and CBS Radio.
