Short Biography

Douglas Quattrochi portrait Image by Caroline Talbot Photography | ctalbotphoto.com

Doug Quattrochi received his Masters in aeronautical engineering from MIT in 2006.  He then worked for five years as an engineer at Pratt & Whitney in East Hartford, CT, where he focused on process improvement and software development for the F100, F119, and PurePower programs.  About two years into his time at Pratt he became a small business owner by purchasing his home, also a rental property, in Worcester, MA.

In 2010, still a landlord, he took an equity opportunity at his first angel-funded startup, Terrafugia, Inc., where he managed their DARPA Transformer contracts and eventually became responsible for IT, manufacturing planning, aspects of HR, and aspects of regulatory compliance.  He left Terrafugia in October 2012.  He worked with a number of very early stage and pre-incorporation startups, including the Music Industry Database (formerly ArtistBomb).

In December 2013 Doug was asked by the non-profit Worcester Property Owners Association to take a more direct leadership role. This resulted in the launch of MassLandlords in February 2014. In June 2016, the former Worcester Property Owners Association completed its rebrand to MassLandlords, Inc.

Doug has had the benefit of a wide variety of extracurricular experience: knock-off Nintendo Power Club founder (a membership service shut down in grade school because “it’s not right to take money from your classmates”); childhood astronomer; high school marching band drum major; MIT Ring Committee chair; fencing team captain; Sigma Nu Fraternity secretary; 2008 Presidential campaign cold caller; Metropolitan Pistol League Sharpshooter; unsuccessful technical trader; successful value investor; weight trainer; non-profit treasurer; alpine skier; and fixer extraordinaire of unserviceable toilets (as are most landlords).

Doug is married to his partner of over 18 years, Oliver Chadwick.
