Dale Hazlett

Chief Financial Officer and Principal

Dale oversees all financial operations at DEG, including resource management, risk assessment, acquisitions, investment planning, shareholder relations, and organic growth. He also handles legal, legislative, and regulatory affairs, and takes the lead in contractual negotiations, offers support for business development, and manages the financial aspects of channel and vendor relationships.

As a co-founder of the firm, Dale established DEG as the ultimate hybrid company – a traditional business with solid financial practices that still remains flexible enough to take advantage of ever-present shifts in technology. He insists on long-term sustainability, while managing rapid growth. Dale’s underlying operations model is to generate returns through consistent delivery of excellence and the effective management of smart people. His passion is structuring deals where everyone wins, because that’s the best foundation for successful and productive business relationships.

Dale received a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from the University of Colorado, and joint Juris Doctorate/Master of Business Administration from the University of Kansas.

When at home, Dale focuses on his family and enjoys travel, hiking, and woodworking.
