Dick DeVos Brings In a New and Experienced CEO to Head the Stow Company

Published / by Crossfit / 1 Comment on Dick DeVos Brings In a New and Experienced CEO to Head the Stow Company

The hiring of 48-year-old executive Phil Dolci is a strategic move for Dick DeVos and family. Stow Company, which is one of the subsidiaries of Windquest group of companies, needed a strategic boost after the retirement of their CEO. Dolci is a Kellogg trained executive with over 20 years of progressive management experience. He takes over from the retiring Frank Newman.

 

Betsy DeVos and her Husband Dick DeVos are keen on social change. Due to their interests, they seek solutions to various problems. The two are also in business. The Windquest Group in which Betsy is the chairperson mostly deals with clean energy and technology. Dick was the president of the Orlando Magic NBA franchise and Amway. Dick and Betsy DeVos are also philanthropists. Betsy chairs the Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation. She also takes part in the activities of many other charity organizations. These include Mars Hill Bible Church and the DeVos Institute of Arts Management at the Kennedy Center.

 

Dick DeVos and his wife Betsy founded the Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation as a way to give back to society. They have been married for nearly 30 years and have four children. The Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation focuses on justice, leadership, education, arts and the general community. Through this foundation, they have taken part in many charities. They are both passionate about being agents of change in society. I think their approach is good because it is not selfish. It is also likely to have a long-term impact on the whole community.

 

Dick DeVos was born in Michigan. He is a businessman and an entrepreneur. After graduating from the Forest Hills public school, he joined Amway which is a business belonging to his family. I think his involvement in the family business since he was young helped in making him a better businessman and entrepreneur. He graduated from Northwood University with an undergraduate degree in business administration.  He has several honorary doctorates from various universities. The Northwood University also gave him alumni recognition.

 

Dick DeVos also holds several executive positions in various companies and institutions. Some of these are the Grand Action, the RDV Corporation, Thunderbird School of Global Management and the West Michigan Aviation Academy.
