Dockter and Marchand combine to bring nearly 50 years of experience to DCA Outdoor, which serves as the parent company of nine brands in the green industry.
"We are committed to a culture of growth that centers around our biggest asset, our employees," said Tory Schwope, CEO and founder of DCA Outdoor. "We firmly believe that every member of our team can learn from each other and cultivate what we proudly call a cycle of learning and growth. Bringing Becky and Curt into the team certainly will build on this foundation."

She previously was the CFO at several manufacturing and construction companies, and was the project manager of a major software implementation for a trucking and wholesale fuel distributor.
"We are excited to begin this new chapter with Becky as our CFO," Schwope said.
Marchand will be responsible for implementing sales strategies and developing a marketing plan for each brand while aligning to the long-term vision of DCA Outdoor. He brings more than 25 years of experience in sales and marketing, leadership and management to the team.
Previously, Marchand was Vice President of Ryan Lawn and Tree, where he managed business operations and development, team-building, designing and implementing comprehensive marketing plans, and directing the overall sales efforts.
