Charles (Chuck) Goodling, PE, has been promoted to President of DuBois & King. With the unanimous support of D&K’s Board of Directors and leadership around the company, Chuck began his duties as D&K’s President on November 21, 2020.

Chuck’s leadership and firm responsibilities have steadily grown, and in 2004, he was appointed Director of the Public Works Division. Over his years of service, Chuck has provided invaluable mentorship and guidance to many throughout D&K and has worked hard to provide professional growth opportunities to others. As his mentees grew into leadership positions, Chuck moved seamlessly into the firm’s only Senior Vice President position, overseeing several operating divisions in multiple offices and states.

Chuck and his wife, Kim, are longtime residents of central Vermont. They homeschooled their three children on their 150-year-old hillside farm, called Grand View Farm, in Washington, VT. Chuck and Kim provided their family with the opportunity to participate in Vermont’s rich agricultural life and, with kids now grown, they continue to operate a sustainable sheep farm and farm-stay B&B. They have been instrumental in establishing Vermont’s first flock of Gotland sheep, which originate from Sweden, and have led two tour groups to Gotland Island. They also raise pigs in the summer and produce maple syrup.

Chuck is a well-respected company leader and is highly regarded by his staff and peers, and we are very fortunate to have him leading the D&K team!
