Daniel Divane IV, President Divane Brothers Electrical CompanyDivane is third generation in the electrical construction business and currently serves as President of Divane Brothers Electric Company, Chicago. His involvement with ELECTRI follows in the footsteps of his uncle, Bill Divane, who was one of ELECTRI’s founding contributors. Dan Divane has served ELECTRI as a member of the Program Review Committee and Investment Committee.  His firm has been active on various research task force groups for ELECTRI, most recently the study on succession planning.

ELECTRI’s efforts to bring us into contact with the best and brightest young college talent is exciting and very necessary.” 

Divane also thanked outgoing Council Chair, Darrell Gossett (ERMCO, Indianapolis) for his exemplary term and for his efforts to help boost the Foundation’s financial asset base by close to $4 million during the past two years.
