Sr. Vice President/Co-Founder
David D. Dunlap, Co-Founder and Senior Vice President at StoneLock, is responsible for corporate planning, corporate strategy, marketing, internal and external communications and legal. He represents StoneLock in the field to both the government and commercial business sectors. Prior to co-founding StoneLock with his wife Colleen, David spent more than 30 years working in a successful family business, SOR Controls, founded in 1946 by his father, Roy Dunlap, and based in the Kansas City area. SOR manufactured a broad line of high-quality mechanical and electronic sensor products, serving a global base of industrial process control markets including power, oil and gas, petrochemical, and nuclear. David culminated his tenure with SOR serving his last ten years as Chairman and CEO, leading the company of 180+ employees through a very successful period in which sales grew from $22 to $36M. While dramatically improving key domestic and international relationships, the company also maintained the highest quality and delivery standards, recording a decline in product returns and actual improvements to on-time delivery during the same period. Stewardship of a family business brought a wealth of global experience to David, including hands-on exposure to a wide variety of industrial control products, process control systems, and advanced manufacturing systems. Under his tenure at SOR, the majority of the team had at least 10 years of experience with the company and some more than 40 years. David brings this experience to StoneLock where he fosters and maintains a positive work environment while encouraging employee development and professional growth. David holds a B.A. in Literature from the College of Wooster. He enjoys music, reading, photography, snow skiing, his hoverboard, trampoline, biking, tropical beaches, movies, sports, techy stuff, eating well, being outside, playing video games, and vacationing with Colleen.
