First, Diane DuMont has been promoted to the role of Northern Aroostook District Supervisor, overseeing staff in Presque Isle, Caribou, and Madawaska. Diane began working for F.A.

Peabody for over 20 years and I am looking forward to the opportunities this new role brings.”
Troy says, “Diane has worked in a supervisory role since late 2019 and has demonstrated a great ability to help oversee staff and operations in our Caribou and Madawaska branches. Adding the Presque Isle operation into her supervisory responsibilities is a natural progression.
