“The time is right for me to pursue other interests before I get too old to enjoy them,” Hitchcock said in his retirement note to their customers. “Our business relationships have been a real pleasure for me. I appreciate the trust that everyone has put in me and Georgia SoftWorks the past 20 years.”
Doug Hitchock and his wife Barbara are retiring into the North Georgia Mountains, where they enjoy spending time outside, doing activities with their church and enjoying their family. He retired from working in the insurance industry and has been with Georgia SoftWorks ever since.

His wealth of knowledge and experience will be greatly missed.”
