Blaine Brothers Announces Next Generation of Company Leaders

Blaine Brothers Announces Next Gen Company Leaders

Dean Dally and Mike Gray will remain on the board, Tim Grabow succeeds Dally as the new company president, and Warren Roseborough assumes the CFO role previously held by Gray.

Blaine Brothers Family of Companies announced Dean Dally, current president, will transition his current role to Tim Grabow, appointed new president of the Blaine Brothers Family of Companies. Grabow will succeed Dally and assume responsibilities effective immediately, says the company.

Celebrating more than 44 years with the company, Dally worked in a variety of positions in the company prior to buying out the remaining interest and becoming the sole owner in 2006. Blaine Brothers says Dally has led the company to where it is today through company growth and acquisitions, to more than 10 locations across the Midwest and over 400 dedicated employees that keep growing the organization.

Tim Grabow joined Blaine Brothers in 2001 and assumed the vice president role in 2012, overseeing sales and operations at all of the locations from 2012 to date. 

In addition, effective March 27, Mike Gray stepped back from his current full-time CFO responsibilities and Warren Roseborough will assume the CFO role after almost six years of working as the controller under Gray.

Gray started his career with Blaine Brothers as staff accountant over 38 years ago and was promoted to controller before assuming the CFO position in 2007. Roseborough has a proven track record managing the companies’ complex accounting and financial processes. Roseborough continues to achieve improvements for the companies while leading the finance and customer service teams, according to Blaine Brothers.

“Now, 8 1/2 years into the Company’s 10-Year Succession Plan, it felt like the right time to move forward with these significant role changes to allow for a complete and smooth transition for all involved,” said Dally. “It has been a blessing to have worked alongside Mike for all of these years. It is because of his total commitment to the companies that we have been able to manage growth and prosper. It has also been so rewarding to have spent this amount of time working on the succession plan. I appreciate the effort that our Leadership Team and many others have put into this process and I am very confident in the future of the companies as we continue to maintain our shared family values in everything we do.” 

Both Dally and Gray will continue their current roles as active members of the board. “A lot of work has been put into preserving the culture and the new leadership team has excelled in showing the values Dean built. The company will continue to sustain the family values the company was founded on,” said Grabow, “and I’m excited to see what we can do next, together, to continue to serve our customers and the future of the companies.”
