Wishing a safe and festive season to you, your families and friends.
Wow, another year has passed, yet it feels like a month. My previous two Christmas letters talked about Dumas’ challenges. Our owners, although remaining supportive, were discouraged by low industry returns and volatility. We all agreed it was time to be trailblazers!
Together, we made some tough decisions in 2019, such as focusing on and working with clients who share similar beliefs and values including “contractors need to make money too!”
While the industry (with our help), is slowly changing, Dumas has completed a rather big step change. We have found and developed a portfolio of stable, like-minded clients and together, we have re-shaped Dumas, completing the largest long-term positive transformation in Dumas’ history.
Highlights are as follows:
Our 1-2-3 strategy has been noted by our owners, clients and potential clients. Our company has a renewed spring in its step.
I am proud of “The Dumas Difference” and thankful to be beside you.
