Dr. Eugene Dokes
Eugene Dokes started his career as a Real estate agent for Coldwell Banker Gundaker at the age of 24. That same year he started a real estate investment company; and two years later he became a broker and began his own real state agency, “e.Dokes Real Estate Brokerage”. His understanding of business deepened as he earned his Bachelor’s in Business Administration with minors in Psychology, Sociology, and Management from Columbia College. Eugene later earned his Master’s degree in Business at Lindenwood University and then his Ph.D, in Organization Management (Business) at Capella University. He has maintained a perfect 4.0 as a PhD student and is the only candidate to conduct research in this region that focuses on entrepreneurship and government policy.
Eugene states that his motivation for succeeding in education is the pride that he feels from knowing that his education can be used to help fuel economic growth in St. Charles County. His love to see people prosper does not expire with businesses. Evidence of this is his self- published book, Purple Hearted; a spiritually inspired nonfiction that teaches success, achievement and fulfillment.
Dokes is a “War on Terror” Veteran; a Navy man, he joined the military only one week after graduating high school at the age of 17. There he quickly became a supervisor, earned his Enlisted Aviation Warfare Specialist (EAWS) wings and received numerous medals including Battle “E”, Good Conduct, and National Defense Medals before honorably discharging as a disabled veteran.
Dokes has served as committeeman on the St. Louis County Republican Central Committee and the Vice Chairman of the St. Charles RCC. He currently serves on the Missouri Advisory Board for the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, and as Chairman for the St. Charles County Republican Central Committee. Still, no titles please him more than “husband” and “father of three”.
His love for family earned him 2012 endorsements from family protecting organizations such as Missouri Right to Life and StudentsFirst.
