Brian Dew



Brian grew up with Mid-City, riding to the office with his dad as a boy. He went from working in the warehouse during his summer breaks, to delivering tools and material, running the warehouse, then purchasing, and then project managing. He now serves as Mid-City’s President and strategic leader. Throughout this time with Mid-City, Brian went to The Ohio State University earning his bachelor’s degree as well as his MBA. He is an advocate for moving the company forward and is heavily involved with the local community as well as industry organizations, like the Builders Exchange of Central Ohio and the National Electrical Contractors Association. An avid outdoorsman and photography enthusiast, Brian enjoys taking trips to Norris Lake with his wife and family, and hunting with his sons and Brittany Spaniels, Daisy and Dash. Brian and Kim are blessed with four boys, Jimmy, Ryan, Andy, and Tanner, and enjoy having Jimmy and Ryan work alongside him in the family business. He is very proud of his five grandchildren Kendall, James, Ben, Winnie, and Hazel and loves spending time with them, watching them grow and overwhelm their parents.
