Our Leadership Team


Nancy Papineau

PRESIDENT

A Pacific Northwesterner with Native American (Cherokee) heritage, Nancy Papineau understands first-hand the rigors and rewards of hard work. She created Dualos to teach these values to her daughters and granddaughters, and to help them—and her community—grow and thrive. 

Nancy brings to Dualos her expertise as a quality systems specialist, creating efficiencies and integrity with value-driven smart management. Grounded in a deep respect for the environment, she is committed to eliminating waste in materials, money and human energy. 

She is also a committed advocate for—and supporter of—science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programs for students. In particular, Nancy is fueled by a desire to increase workforce diversity by employing veterans and Native Americans: a strategy that fulfills the primary objective of meeting the company’s growth potential while driving it to become ever more sustainable and ecologically responsible.
