Cascade Dafo, a Ferndale-based orthotic brace manufacturer, is looking for a new CEO.
Bill Weymer, who has been the CEO for the past six years, announced that he will be leaving at the end of September to take the CEO position at Town & Country Markets, which operates six grocery stores in the greater Seattle area.
“Cascade Dafo is a wonderful company with an incredible mission, and this departure is not an easy one for me,” Weymer said in a press release. “This company helps improve the lives of children with mobility challenges all over the world, every single day. I am truly honored to have worked with so many great individuals during my time here.”
Cascade Dafo has manufactured plastic orthotic braces, primarily for pediatric patients, for nearly 30 years. The company is known for its innovative brace design: a thin, flexible structure with wraparound support called the Dynamic Ankle Foot Orthoses, or DAFO, which allows greater freedom of movement for patients.
Town & Country Markets will be familiar territory for Weymer when he starts in October. He previously spent more than 30 years in the grocery industry, most recently a senior executive with Brown and Cole stores, prior to joining Cascade Dafo.
After graduating from Michigan State University with a degree in food marketing, Weymer began his career with Associated Grocers where he served supermarkets in the Northwest.
