Future Leaders for Blaine Brothers Family of Companies

Blaine Brothers Appoints New President

Blaine Brothers Family of Companies, a member of HDA Truck Pride, has announced a major transition in leadership roles. After more than 44 years with the company, Dean Dally, the current President, will transition his role to Tim Grabow, who has been appointed as the new President. Tim will succeed Dean and assume responsibilities effective immediately.

Dean worked in a variety of positions in the company prior to ultimately buying out the remaining interest and becoming the sole owner in 2006. Under his leadership, Blaine Brothers has grown substantially, with over 10 locations across the Midwest and more than 400 dedicated employees. Tim Grabow joined the company in 2001 and assumed the Vice President role in 2012, overseeing Sales and Operations at all of the locations from 2012 to date.

Blaine Brothers Assigns New CFO

Additionally, effective March 27, Mike Gray will step back from his current full-time CFO responsibilities and Warren Roseborough will assume the CFO role. Mike started his career with Blaine Brothers as Staff Accountant over 38 years ago and was promoted to Controller before assuming the CFO position in 2007. Warren has a proven track record managing the company’s complex accounting and financial processes.

Dean and Mike will continue their current roles as active members of the board. “A lot of work has been put into preserving the culture and the new leadership team has excelled in showing the values Dean built. The company will continue to sustain the family values the company was founded on,” said Tim Grabow. “I’m excited to see what we can do next, together, to continue to serve our customers and the future of the companies.”

Blaine Brothers is a second-generation family-owned business established in 1979. The company includes four separate business entities that together offer nearly every product and service requested in the commercial transportation industry. Blaine Brothers facilities offer medium- to heavy-duty truck and trailer parts, service, towing & 24/7 emergency service, customized fleet maintenance plans, transport refrigeration service and sales and rental of Capacity yard trucks.
