Dale Riddle Retires after 21 years at Seneca

February 13, 2017

EUGENE, OR — Long-time Seneca and Jones family attorney, Dale Riddle, has retired effective December 31, 2016.

Riddle began working at Seneca in January 1995, as full-time in-house legal counsel.  Riddle and Seneca founder and President Aaron Jones shared common visions; together, they made a powerful team.  Riddle’s first big victory on behalf of the Jones family included stopping the City of Florence in their attempts to drawdown Clear Lake thus leaving it in its natural state.  Riddle is never one to stand down in a fight based on principle.  Neither are the Joneses.

Riddle has too many professional accomplishments to list.  He worked on state wide issues, national issues, and even international issues as he played a key role in the softwood lumber trade disputes between the United States and Canada.

Riddle will be succeeded by Cameron Krauss as Seneca’s Senior Vice President – Legal Affairs.

Riddle and wife Candi have six children; three sons and three daughters.  Their four oldest children are married.  They have 10 grandchildren, ranging in age from seven months to 13 years.

Dale is looking forward to enjoying his retirement golfing, playing basketball and tennis, spending time at his home in Sunriver, but, most especially, spending more time with his family.

When asked about what he would remember the most about working at Seneca, Dale said, “The experience of working hand-in-hand, day-to-day with Aaron and the great group of people Aaron put together.  I have been very blessed to be able to work for Seneca and the Jones family.”
