Former Saunders Executive and City Leader Passes

For 25 years, Hugh Saunders was the president and
chief executive officer of Westbrook-based Saunders Bros., once the largest
manufacturer of dowels in the country. With seats on innumerable boards in the
region, he once had a prominent influence on Greater Portland. As manager of the
Westbrook mill, he was as well-known for being a personable and compassionate
boss as he was for being a leader and a visionary.
