Gabby was introduced to Diamondhead through a former employee. Her outgoing personality and enthusiasm for building relationships made her the perfect fit as our office manager! She is a proud mom and loves soaking up every minute with her daughter. She can often be found spending time with her daughter, practicing tennis, or eating double fudge brownies from kneaders.
Debbie was introduced to Darin and Diamondhead through a metal business acquaintance. She was seriously impressed with how much Darin genuinely cared about his clients and making sure the dentists he works with are successful. She knew instantly “that’s something I could get on board with”. Two years later she jumped at an opportunity to work at Diamondhead and has since proved to be an invaluable asset to the company!
Troy moved to Diamondhead after being contracted by Darin. His skills as a ceramicist and his knowledge of big lab operations/practices make him a natural leader at Diamondhead. Troy is motivated by challenges, his desire for success, and building an empire. He can be found training other ceramicists, completing a wide range of ceramic work, and making sure the lab is running smoothly.
Dave helped Darin and Mike found Diamondhead in 2012. He has grown and helped scale the lab through all of its various stages. Dave cares most about God, his family, and his country. He finds satisfaction in productivity and building something he can look back at and admire.
