Randy Watson

Chief Executive Officer

Randy Watson’s open door, razor-sharp mind, and big heart have earned him a lot of brownie points as Bulldog’s Chief Executive Officer. There’s no one better suited to steer our company, lead our teams, drive client success, and deliver on our business value promise.
 
Before landing the gig of a lifetime here at Bulldog, Randy served in executive roles at Acxiom and Alltel Information Systems and held numerous leadership roles beyond. All focused on developing repeatable, customer-centric innovations, value-driven go-to-market strategies, and kick-ass professional relationships that have endured to this day.
 
Randy earned his Bachelor of Science degree in International Trade and Finance from Louisiana State University, where he also acquired 90 percent of his Friday wardrobe.
 
FUN FACTS!
Randy is probably in better shape than you. That’s because when he’s not working, he’s running, hiking, biking, and chasing lost golf balls around the local course.
 
Watsons run the world. Randy and his wife, Malinda, have four grown children spread across Texas, Doha, Qatar, and Guangzhou, China.
 
The man knows his way around airport security. Randy and Malinda love traveling together, often visiting their daughters and grandchildren overseas.
