Doug Shatto Promoted to Chief Executive Officer (CEO)

Congratulations to Doug Shatto, PE, PTOE, Lochmueller Group’s new Chief Executive Officer (CEO)! Doug succeeds Mike Hinton in accordance with Lochmueller’s succession plan, thereby allowing the company to continue its growth and evolution. Former CEO Mike Hinton will remain with the company as Executive Chairman and will lead the new Fiduciary Board of Directors.

Doug previously served as President and Chief Operating Officer (COO). He has accrued nearly 37 years of industry experience and has been with Lochmueller Group since 2010.

As CEO, Doug will report to the Board for guidance on the company’s direction and to ensure that all actions taken are in the best interest of the company’s employee-owners. That also makes him the conduit to our Trustee for the ESOP. He will continue to serve as President, wherein Doug’s responsibilities include:

  • All personnel & activities of the company
  • Controlling all functions of the company
  • Incurring all obligations and liabilities of the company (except those reserved for the Board of Directors)

Overall, Doug’s role as President/CEO includes responsibilities such as:

  • Developing policies
  • Interpreting & enforcing policies
  • Formulating our business operational plan
  • Representing the company in official capacities

“I’m truly humbled to be given the opportunity to lead this company and follow in Keith Lochmueller and Mike Hinton’s footsteps,” Doug said. “I’m very grateful to them as well as the rest of our team, and I’m committed to serving the employee-owners to the best of my ability. I’m very excited about the company’s position, the opportunities that we have before us, and the great team that we have. In fact, the size and depth of our team continues to build; each new hire and each new project represents another step forward for us, and I can feel our momentum building! That energizes me because I know it means more opportunity for our team members and a better retirement for our employee-owners. I’m looking forward to collaborating with our management team and the entire staff to take Lochmueller Group to the next level… and to have some fun while doing it!”
