Divisions Maintenance Group is thrilled to announce Chris Brunemann has been promoted to vice president of mid-market accounts.
Brunemann starts in his new role Aug. 1, where he’ll be responsible for overseeing all of DMG’s new and existing mid-sized accounts.
“I can’t wait to get started,” Brunemann said. “I think what I’m most looking forward to is mentoring and developing future leaders on my team – helping them grow as individuals while we’re all working to grow DMG into a billion-dollar company.”
DMG is a technology company that provides facility maintenance to tens of thousands of customers around the U.S., including many in the retail, distribution and real-estate industries. The company hit a record $433 million in revenue this past year, a 39% increase compared to the prior year. The goal is to grow DMG in a billion-dollar company within the next few years.
Toward that end, DMG is on a hiring spree – looking to bring in as many as 100 new engineers and information technology specialists, a dozen or so data analysts, and another 40 to 50 employees for the sales team. The company recently hired veteran executive Dick Surdykowski Jr. as chief commercial officer and brought in Kumar Srinivasan, a former chief technology officer for Nordstrom, as chief product officer. Russell Page, formerly head of business intelligence and technology innovation for General Motors, is DMG’s new SVP of data and analytics.
But the company also has a strong tendency, as in Brunemann’s case, to promote from within.
Brunemann, initially from Crescent Springs, Kentucky, started with DMG seven years ago as a national account manager. Prior to this most recent promotion, he was a vice president on one of the company’s national customer accounts.
He currently lives in Union, Kentucky, with his wife, two daughters, ages 8 and 5, and two family dogs.
“DMG is a great place to work,” he said. “We work hard, but that hard work and dedication is rewarded by a company that values and takes care of its employees. This has turned into a great career for me. I feel lucky to have landed here, and I’d recommend DMG to anyone.”
