Doug Doane retires

Doug Doane retires

We will miss you Doug!

Everyone remembers what it was like in early 2009, so I won’t dredge

up the imagery.  It was our unwavering faith in US manufacturing that

Dalton hired Doug Doane on June 1, 2009.  It is in this back drop, that

Doug began his career at Dalton Electric.  Doug has proven to be an

excellent sales professional, with a nuclear reactor supply of energy

and desire to help his customers, distributors and fellow Dalton

co-workers to remove any obstacle in his path to solve problems.  

He is mighty, fearless, and tireless in his support and advocacy of his

customers and channel partners.  Doug has aggressively pushed the

organization to achieve and perform the formerly unachievable.  In his

10 years at Dalton, Doug has been single minded in his pursuit of new

customers, new applications and new business in general.  Doug’s

enthusiasm and energy will be sadly missed in the halls of Dalton.


But he is on another mission now.  Since buying his retirement home in

Downeast Maine, Doug and his wife Julie have been on a non-stop

Migration, moving bits and pieces of their home and life “up to Maine”. 

Doug is an avid fisherman and in between caring for the mammoth

draft horses at his brothers rescue farm, he intends to spend more

time casting his line in the pursuit of landing another big fish. 


Doug and Julie have one grown son, Jonathan.  He and his wife Kristen

have 7 year old daughter.  The love and devotion of a grandchild cannot

be understood unless you have one.  Doug and Julie have been deeply

involved in helping shape her young life and are both excited about the

prospects of being able to spend even more time with their family.


Doug, you have left a lasting legacy here that will live on.  Our doors

and hearts will forever remain open to you and your family.  Until then,

we bid you a fond farewell, arrivederci, adieu, adios, auf wiedershen,

goodbye dear friend.
