Biography of Dawson Spano, President and CEO of Profiles in Wood, Inc.

Mr. Spano was born in Baltimore Maryland in 1957. His father served in the Air Force which meant he traveled all over the world as a child. He spent most of his later childhood in a very rural part of southern New Hampshire with only 15 students (from Brookline) in his high school graduating class (1975). He graduated from the Florida Institute of Technology in 1979 and went to work for a small Aerospace company in Florida designing ground, sea and space deployable communication systems. In 1999 he became the senior engineering manager of the Mechanical Engineering department. After several years in that position he went back to new business design with assignments in the Mediterranean and finally back home working on the Joint Strike Fighter program as the mechanical systems engineer. He "retired" from the corporate world in 2003 to manage Profiles in Wood, Inc. full time.
