We strive to keep our people at the peak of their professional game. We encourage the growth and development of everyone, from our newest graduates to our experienced teammates, through intensive training, daily face time with leadership and listening to everyone’s ideas.

Being able to directly influence the bottom line of an organization by generating cost savings, and then being able to pass those savings along to both investors and clients is what attracted me to procurement in the first place. I treat every dollar of procurable spend as if it were my own, and where possible, I recommend solutions to help Dixon deliver projects on time, under budget, and to the highest possible degree of quality. – Joseph McCue, Procurement Analyst
