David started DornerWorks to provide electronics engineering expertise to businesses who need reliability in both design and service. In its first few years, the company grew rapidly, doubling in size several times over, and now continues to grow with those original principles, serving many businesses and institutions. David has been recognized as a business leader by the Grand Rapids Business Journal (40 Under Forty) and by his alma mater, Calvin College (Horizon Award), among others. As our CEO, he helps make sure all of us stay on the mission of helping our customers focus on their core expertise through that same reliable design and service for which DornerWorks was founded.
Jeff is a skilled business administrator who works closely with our customers to make sure that all invoicing is accurate and timely. He joined DornerWorks to work with his brother David after honing his skills as a business manager for two high profile medical practices in New York City.

His goal is to provide much-needed perspective as one of the few non-engineers in an engineering company while we serve our customers reliably.
