Dwight Schrute began his career at Dunder Mifflin as a salesperson, but quickly rose through the ranks to assume the titles of Assistant to the Regional Manager, Assistant Regional Manager, and, finally, Regional Manager of the Scranton Branch. His dedication and loyalty to the field of paper are apparent in multiple sales records he set at the company, specifically in relation to the now infamous launch of Dunder Mifflin Infinity where he single-handedly bested online sales in a one-on-one competition. Thanks to his influence, the Scranton branch was able to secure new advancements in wellness (specifically, CPR mask demonstrations), fire safety (he created the now-named “Schrute fire drill”), and recycling (namely: Recyclops). His adherence to facts and the truth in the form of straight-forward questions and rejection of anything false have become a badge of honor for Schrute.
Born and raised in Honesdale, PA to a Pennsylvania Dutch family of beet farmers, Dwight is currently married to fellow Dunder Mifflin employee Angela Martin. In addition to his tenure at Dunder Mifflin, Dwight enjoys a prolific career as a beet farmer at Schrute Farms, which is home to a renowned bed and breakfast. He's also the owner of the Scranton Business Park, which houses Dunder Mifflin Scranton. As a dedicated resident of the greater Scranton area, Dwight served as a volunteer sheriff in Lackawanna County.
