P. Graham Dunn Appoints New CEO

P. Graham Dunn is pleased to announce that Mike Taylor has been appointed CEO of the company effective April 1, 2017.  Peter Dunn will continue in his role of Chairman of the Board while Joe Knutson will continue in the role of President.

Mike has been a longtime advisor to Peter and LeAnna Dunn and the P. Graham organization dating back more than 25 years.  “Over the years Mike has become more than a business adviser.  He has also become a family adviser on transitioning our business from the first generation to the second.  He has done so with a combination of persistence and grace.  Our company is at a pivotal point in its growth where the skills and experience of Mike will be fully utilized,” says Peter Dunn. 

Mike is a former shareholder of Rea and Associates, Inc where he has served as manager of the Millersburg Office and Vice President of Operations.  Rea and Associates is an Ohio accounting and business advisory firm with 10 offices and over 225 business professionals.  The firm is one of the largest CPA firms in Ohio and the 96th largest firm in the United States.

P. Graham Dunn has experienced significant growth over the past few years, including the completion of a facility expansion that nearly triples the space they occupied just a year ago.  The expansion is in step with capacity to support customer demand and greater product complexity.  “What has made P. Graham Dunn great is our ability to design and adapt to the market.  As we continue to grow we need to protect that competitive edge while serving the needs of a wide variety of customers.  We understand it will take change in the way we do things to serve our customers tomorrow as well as we serve them today.  Mike will be an agent of that change,” said Joe Knutson, President.

“I am honored to take the role of CEO in this company.  I am looking forward to working with Peter, Joe and the entire management team.  This is a company with tremendous opportunities and an abundance of great people.  I am excited about the future and helping to lead this company forward,” said Mike.

Mike is a lifelong resident of Millersburg and has served as an advisor to companies throughout Wayne and Holmes County.  He is skilled at organizational development and business planning. Mike is married to Cindy and has two adult children and two grandchildren. 

Joe feels “Mike is a perfect fit for our company and our culture.  I believe he will be a crucial ingredient to our continued success.”

 

Easter Celebration
Dogwood Sapling Giveaway

Please join us on Saturday, April 15th from 9am-5pm for our Easter Celebration and to receive one of 1,000 dogwood tree saplings we are giving away in celebration and remembrance of Jesus. Limit is one per person, while supplies last.

The symbolism of the dogwood tree:

The dogwood tree was once a very large and sturdy tree used to build the cross upon which Jesus was crucified. The dogwood tree would never grow large or strong enough to build a cross again and would also blossom each year before Easter in His memory.

The dogwood tree today is very small with twisted branches unsuitable for lumber, and the blossoms are even more symbolic. The shape of the flower consists of four petals blossoming into a cross shape. Each petal is indented with a red edge representing nails and blood. Even the spiny flower center is symbolic, resembling the crown of thorns.

We hope you plant the dogwood sapling and remember this special time every year when the tree blossoms.
