The Dohrmann family operated Dohrmann Hotel Supply; the largest global resort-outfitting firm now owned by Holiday Inn. The family also owned the Emporium store chain from the 1800’s, as one of the larger department store chains forging the history of the West Coast market place.
Berny’s father, Alan Dohrmann, was a corporate trainer who was sought out by such notables as Napoleon Hill, Earl Nightingale, Walt Disney, Warner Earnhardt, John Hanley, Thomas Willhite, Bucky Fuller, Dr. Edward Deming and Jack Kennedy. Berny grew up with amazing mentors as one of nine children raised in Marin County California
Mr. Dohrmann was mentored by the man who pioneered oil tanker funding in the 1960’s and 1970’s, George Witter of Dean Witter when the brokerage firm was a family owned San Franciscan firm, and Peter Ueberroth former commissioner of Major League Baseball, and currently Chairman of the Contrarian Group, Inc.
In his first twenty years, Mr. Dohrmann was Chairman of a public institution heading up global investment firms, supervising thousands of licensed professionals operating in fourteen countries. Berny sold his firm to take care of his terminally ill father and later finished the brain research he and Berny started, thus creating a product known as Super Teaching. Super Teaching is showcased during CEO Space’s weeklong business growth conferences, 5 times a year.
