P. Graham Dunn names 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.
