After working in Silicon Valley in the Procurement profession for approximately 20+ years, my wife and I moved to Honolulu in 2011.

During our time in the islands, I spent a majority of my efforts successfully pursuing distressed properties on Oahu and Maui. Due to the health of my wife’s father, we recently moved back to the mainland, specifically Phoenix.

At this point in time, I have decided to return to my true passion for supporting a forward looking positive company. With my knowledge, experience and enthusiasm, I’m sure I would prove to be an asset to your team.

Please contact me for further discussion at your earliest convenience.

Thanks Dale
