“I am humbled and honored to be included in such a well-respected and distinguished list of forward-thinking leaders,” said Griggs. “This is a reflection of what the entire team has accomplished. Each and every employee has contributed to Dovel’s success. Their tireless commitment to supporting our customers’ missions that improve, protect, and save lives is what fuels our growth and my passion for leading this amazing team.”
Dovel continues to see impressive growth, scaling to a competitive mid-size company with Griggs at the helm.
