January 27, 2021 BIRMINGHAM, AL: Ironline Advisors has announced its affiliation with Doug Acton as a Mergers & Acquisitions Advisor. With over 30 years of construction industry experience, Acton will apply his construction expertise to expand Ironline’s advisory services with general contractors, subcontractors and building-related businesses throughout Alabama and its surrounding States.

A graduate of Auburn University majoring in Building Science, Doug founded D.L. Acton Construction, a Birmingham, AL-based General Contractor providing commercial building services for churches, healthcare facilities, financial institutions, office buildings, industrial plants, and retail facilities since 1989. Under his leadership, D.L. Acton developed a strong reputation with Design/Development groups for its “team approach” in the design and construction of commercial building projects. 

In December 2020, Acton completed his leadership and ownership succession plan through the sale of the Company to its current President, Brandon McLemore. With over twenty years tenure with D. L. Acton, McLemore formed McLemore Building, LLC to complete the acquisition and will continue to operate as D. L. Acton Construction. Both Acton and McLemore enlisted the advisory services of Ironline Advisors to successfully complete the transaction.

Stan Bailey, Chairman of Ironline Advisors, stated, “I have known and worked with Doug for several decades, always respecting his knowledge and integrity as both a general contractor and businessman. There’s no better representative of Ironline than a business owner who has organized and successfully implemented his succession plan. We know he will be an asset and wise counsel to other construction-related business owners through his recent transaction experience.”
