Blaine Brothers announces new president, chief financial officer

Tim Grabow will succeed Dean Dally and assume responsibilities effective immediately.

HDA Truck Pride member Blaine Brothers announced that Dean Dally, current president, will transition his current role to Tim Grabow, who has been appointed the new president of the Blaine Brothers family of companies. Grabow will succeed Dally and assume responsibilities effective immediately.

Celebrating more than 44 years with the company, 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. Dally has led the company with over 10 locations across the Midwest and over 400 employees. Grabow joined Blaine Brothers in 2001 and assumed the vice president role in 2012, overseeing sales and operations at all of the locations from 2012 to date.

Additionally, effective March 27, Mike Gray will step back from his current full-time chief financial officer responsibilities and Warren Roseborough will assume the chief financial officer role after almost six years of working as the controller under Gray. Gray started his career with Blaine Brothers as staff accountant over 38 years ago and was promoted to controller before assuming the chief financial officer position in 2007. Warren has a proven track record managing the companies’ accounting and financial processes, the company says. Warren continues to achieve improvements for the companies while leading the finance and customer service teams, the company says.

Both Dally and Gray will continue their current roles as active board members.
