Dovel Technologies has announced that President and Chief Operating Officer Damon Griggs will become Chief Executive Officer of the company effective November 1, 2019. As part of this long-planned succession, current CEO, Paul Leslie, will transition to Executive Chairman of the Board.
Dovel helps advance federal agency missions to improve, protect, and save lives. The company has a long history of integrating emerging technologies with domain expertise, mission requirements, and customer needs.
Griggs joined the company in 2016 in the role of COO and assumed the responsibilities of President in 2018. Since Griggs’ arrival, Dovel has more than doubled in size and has built out its infrastructure in preparation for the next phase of growth, including the recent acquisition of Ace Info Solutions. He has been instrumental in the development of Dovel’s corporate strategy, focusing on expanding capabilities, enhancing relationships with current and prospective customers, and providing opportunities for employee growth.
Leslie joined Dovel as CEO in 2011. In that time, he led the growth of the company from a small business with less than 50 employees into a significant player in the federal government space with over 2,200 personnel today.
