Richard Dumont, who was instrumental in setting up the first marine retail reporting system at Statistical Surveys, retired Jan. 1.

Dumont, who turns 73 on Wednesday, joined the Michigan company in 1994 and was responsible for the design of the reports, establishing connections with marine data sources and sales of the reports to the industry. He was the company’s first national marine sales manager.

In 1995, the first reports were sent out to the industry. During the next 20 years, Dumont helped to develop many reports that are still used today. He also was a speaker at a number of national and state events, served on the board of the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators and wrote articles for many publications.

Dumont started his career at R.L. Polk & Co. and spent 27 years there; he was the company’s sales manager for Canada and also developed retail reporting in Europe for European auto manufacturers.

“Not many people continue to work for 47 years, and for Dick to do so and to accomplish so much is a real tribute to him,” Statistical Surveys president Tom Walworth said in a statement.
