Leadership Changes at TMB
Tom Dority joined Tech-Marine Business (TMB) in 2008 and has been serving as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) since 2010. TMB has experienced success across those years, however our last two Strategic Plans have listed succession planning as one of the critical tasks ahead. With that, Tom has announced that he is stepping down as CEO with Dan Clague replacing him in that capacity effective January 1, 2022. This succession plan has been briefed to, and approved by, the full TMB Board of Directors. Dan is ready, fully capable, and enthusiastic to take on the CEO role. Tom will continue to work full time as Board Chairman through June 30, 2022, at which point he will transition to a part time status in the same capacity. Between now and the end of June 2022, Tom will focus on assisting with our Return to Office (RTO); engaging with our Trustee to protect shareholder value; working ongoing business development initiatives; and being available to support Dan in the background as he implements his vision for the Company. Tom sends his most heartfelt thanks to all the extraordinary people he has had the pleasure of working with since he joined this magnificent enterprise. It has been the honor of his 40-year professional career to have had the opportunity to lead TMB.
Dan Clague assumed TMB’s Chief Executive Officer responsibilities on 1 January 2022 and is very humbled by the responsibilities the TMB Board has entrusted in him. Prior to becoming CEO, he was TMB’s President and Chief Operating Officer (COO) and in this role he oversaw the management and execution of TMB contracts as well as personnel, finance and accounting, and facilities management. Since starting with TMB in 2003, Dan has experience of increasing responsibilities beginning as a Program Manager providing support to the ACAT 1D LPD 17 Program Office’s Government Furnished Equipment (GFE) manager and the Business and Financial Manager (BFM) before providing direct executive level consulting services to major defense development, acquisition, and sustainment programs in naval shipbuilding and combat systems procurement. Before joining the Defense Industry, Dan served 26 years in the U.S. Navy starting as an enlisted sailor and retiring as a Commander.
