President’s Message


October 2017

Over the past 12 years, Dovetail has grown from a two-person shop to a thriving business with almost 50 staff members and multiple offices….and we continue to expand! Not only am I exceedingly proud of our staff and our growth, but I am thrilled that we have kept our founding principles throughout our journey:

  • Excellent customer service (something I learned from a decade in the food industry!)
  • Production of exemplary scholarship
  • Treatment of staff as respected colleagues
  • Understanding that preservation and progress are not mutually exclusive

Our market has expanded to cover 10 states, from New York to North Carolina, and our suite of services continues to grow to meet our client’s needs. We have become active members of the American Cultural Resources Association (ACRA) to support our industry across the nation, and we have built great relationships with some spectacular firms and agencies. These activities have made our company stronger. Most importantly, we have embraced the importance of giving back to our community, and we encourage volunteerism through pro bono projects, our staff community outreach program, and charitable donations. It is our honor to be an active participant in both preservation and social non-profit programs throughout our service regions.

Please feel free to give me a call (540-899-9170) or send me an email (kbarile@dovetailcrg.com) if you would like to hear more about our services, our programs, or our staff. I’m always happy to chat “Dovetail”!

Warm regards,
Kerri S. Barile
President
