Dewayne Dikes heads up inventory control for Villa Dauphine. Joining the company in 2007, he oversees all aspects of receiving, tracking, shipping, and delivery of inventory for both the store and our clients. Working closely with the various decorators, Dikes coordinates both personnel and special orders to get items delivered and set up in a timely manner. His ?white glove? care and handling of furniture ensures our client?s home installations run smoothly and efficiently. Being a stickler for safety, Dikes and his delivery crew are careful with the furniture in the client?s home, at our retail store, or in the Villa?s warehouse. It is his department that handles damage and returns when issues arise during the shipping process. A native of Saraland, Dikes is currently attending the University of South Alabama in the evening for a degree in Environmental Management.
