November 30, 2023 – Peter Dalton, president of Kingston, Ont.-based Daltco Electric (a member of Groupe Deschênes Inc.), announced he will be retiring in February 2024.

“Over 28 years, I have relished the opportunity to take part in exceptional change and growth in the electrical industry. I feel fortunate that my professional success has been enriched by the many personal connections I have made throughout the years,” said Dalton.

“I want to thank Peter for supporting and facilitating the transition of Daltco within the Deschenes Group, and wish him and his wife a long, healthy and well-deserved retirement,” said François Deschênes, president & CEO.

After a career in sales and marketing, Dalton joined the family business in 1997. He became president two years later, when his father retired.

“Under Peter’s leadership, Daltco consistently grew faster than the market to become the premier electrical distributor in Eastern Ontario, and one of Canada’s prominent regional electrical wholesalers,” said Deschênes.

Over the years, Peter has been recognized for his leadership and professionalism in various industry roles, Deschênes continued, including board member of Electro-Federation Canada and, currently, chair of AD Electrical–Canada.

“He has also been an active contributor in his community through various roles, including as governor of the Kingston General Hospital and board member for St Lawrence College Foundation,” Deschênes added.

“As I look forward to moving on to the next chapter, I hope for the continued success of Daltco Electric, and wish all the best to the many staff, customers, suppliers, and partners who have been part of this journey,” Dalton said.
