Damon Griggs to Lead Dovel Technologies as CEO
McLean, VA, October 9, 2019 – Dovel Technologies, a leading expert to federal agencies that blends deep domain expertise and advanced technologies in the health IT, life sciences, and grants management markets, today 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 bring meaningful change to improve, protect, and save lives. The company has a long, proven history of integrating emerging technologies with domain expertise, mission requirements, and customer needs to produce lasting and highly innovative solutions.
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.
“The Dovel team takes enormous pride in the design, development, and delivery of innovative solutions that fundamentally enable our customers to meet their mission. I am dedicated to continuing to foster a culture of innovation, remaining committed in our customer centricity, while elevating our position as an employer of choice,” said Griggs. “With our ongoing development and expansion of competencies and capabilities, as well as access to a wide-range of contract vehicles, Dovel will continue to provide cutting-edge solutions and expand our reach to broaden our impact across the federal government.”
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. With Leslie’s vision and leadership, Dovel focused on the health IT, life sciences, and grants management markets, building a unique team by combining subject matter experts to support the technologists, creating solutions for clients working in these complex and data-rich environments.
“I am so grateful to Damon for the outstanding support and exceptional leadership he has provided me and the Dovel team. Succession planning has been a critical component of our strategy as we looked to the future, including the timing of this transition,” commented Leslie. “I have tremendous confidence in Damon and the executive team and look forward to this next chapter in Dovel’s evolution as we continue to expand our capabilities to help our customers create the government of the future.”
