New D&H Headquarters Is ‘Transformational:’ Dan And Michael Schwab

D&H Co-Presidents Dan and Michael Schwab speak with CRN about the impact the move to a new campus—which includes a state-of-the-art solutions center and workspaces—is having on the 101-year-old company’s co-owner employees, vendors and partners.

D&H Co-Presidents Dan and Michael Schwab—who celebrated the grand opening of the company’s new high-tech campus with a gala event for 300 vendors—said key to the design and build-out of the new headquarters was input from the distributor’s co-owner employees.

“We listened to the employees,” said Michael Schwab. “We purposefully asked for their feedback. We asked them what was important to them for the new facility. It wasn’t just us articulating our vision. We asked the 750 employees that work across these two buildings what is it that they would like to see in their new D&H headquarters. That is where we came up with all the innovation and ideas.”

Dan Schwab said that constant feedback from co-owners is at the heart of D&H’s success. “We are a bottoms-up driven company,” he said. “Most organizations are top-down. With every co-owner on their one-year anniversary we have ‘Pizza with the Presidents’ and ask them to tell us what we don’t want to hear. Most companies don’t want to hear the bad stuff. We’d much rather hear the bad stuff than the good stuff because that is how you get better. We know we do a lot of things really well, but we are always striving to be better.”
