Congratulations to Walter ‘Dub’ Newell, owner of FirstLight Home Care Louisville. This week, Dub was featured in the Courier-Journal where he discussed bringing the first FirstLight location to his community, the great services offered and his plans for growth over the next few years.
Prior to opening FirstLight, Dub spent nearly 20 years in the accounting industry, as a partner in the accounting firm of Cotton and Allen, PSC in Louisville. Successful in his career, he ultimately decided to leave the industry to pursue a long-time goal of becoming a small business owner. As President of ACG Kentucky and involved in various other community initiatives, Dub wanted a career that would have a larger impact on people’s lives and, after due diligence in evaluating business opportunities, chose FirstLight Home Care. Dub has plans to expand to at least two additional territories within the next 5 years (the next location is slated to open in 2012), in addition to expanding into skilled care.
