Dennis has been with Caledonia Haulers since the company’s creation in 1958. His father, Joe Gavin, was one of the original founders of the company. As a youngster he worked in the shop learning the ropes. He moved to driving when he became of age, and then advanced to dispatching. Dennis became a stockholder in 1985, and he was promoted to President / CEO in 1995 and is now the sole owner as of 2013. Dennis is a very hand’s on owner who is involved with every aspect of the business. He always practices an “open door” policy and can still be seen driving truck when needed. Out of the office, Dennis enjoys spending time with his wife, family and friends, and can often be found out at his farm.
