Doug Hickey - Founder, CEO

“Hard-work, grit, and determination” is an overused adage, but it perfectly describes Doug’s commitment to running his company. Establishing DBH in 2009, Doug has worked tirelessly to grow and refine his business to deliver customers the best value possible.

Prior to DBH, Doug spent 22 years working for Haliburton and Schlumberger in continents such as Africa and Asia. Doug’s experience in managerial roles has greatly benefited DBH. His ability to apply business management knowledge and training that he attained overseas, facilitates the efficient operation of the company.

When Doug has downtime, he enjoys exploring rural areas throughout Newfoundland. He is also a faithful follower of the Toronto Maple Leafs – his favourite hockey team. Like most Leaf fans, it is unclear whether he enjoys watching them play most nights.

John “Johnny” Collier - Journeyman Carpenter

With 30-plus years as a journeyman carpenter, Johnny also brings expert knowledge of residential construction to the team. Framing, constructing stairs and building wall layouts briefly summarize his role. Before pursuing a career in construction, Johnny worked as a ship builder, fabricating fishing trawlers.

Johnny is a lover of all things related to sports. Once a hockey and softball player in his youth, Johnny now enjoys watching Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins. He is also an outdoor enthusiast, as he occupies his time by hunting, fishing and berry picking with his wife.

Jonathan Hickey - Marketing & Business Development Coordinator

As a recent graduate of Memorial University’s Commerce program, Jon has been able to take the knowledge and skills that he developed in the classroom and effectively apply them to real-world situations. Although Jon has multiple functions within the company, he is mainly responsible for developing and executing marketing strategies as well as creating and managing content for DBH’s digital and social media platforms. He also does not mind rolling up his sleeves and giving a hand on site when necessary.
