Having worked at Ace Metal Crafts Company since 1986 – beginning his career as a mechanical engineer – Dale has seen firsthand the importance of a strong manufacturing community to our nation’s economic well-being.
Over his 30-year career, Dale has progressed from engineer, to sales engineer – VP of Sales and Marketing to VP of Operations and eventually President – always with the same attitude of leading by example as a listener, planner and strategic problem solver who tirelessly works to empower his teams to accomplish their shared goals.
As a natural leader, the next step in Dale’s career is his role as VP Manufacturing Engineering, with the goal of finding and nurturing the next generation of thinkers and leaders at ACE.
Dale’s drive is to not only develop the technical and manufacturing aptitude in his new leaders, but to foster in them ACE’s commitment to caring for customers and team members alike.
Dale has a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Michigan Technological University.
