Dennis has made a career of driving innovation into all aspects of his professional life while inspiring others to pull together to realize ... something greater. This is an innate ability and not something easily taught or acquired; this ability makes him uniquely qualified to lead others through areas of uncertainty and gray. This trait places him in the rarified air that makes for successful entrepreneurs.
Aaron Benway
They're my friends  •  Founder, Health Savings Accounts, Health Document Storage, Tax and Retirement Planning, HSA Coach. Harvard Business School grad.
I have known Dennis since we were roommates at Alabama's Governor School the summer before of our senior year of high school. Dennis has a ... tenacious work ethic, starting in high school, when he worked in a building material plant for WR Grace as a hourly laborer. Dennis began college at Auburn University, then repeated his freshman year at the US Naval Academy. He went on to graduate with a degree in mechanical engineering and entered the naval service as a surface nuclear engineering officer. After the Navy and experience as a sales rep for a telecommunication equipment manufacturer, he went to MIT for a master's degree. Later he went to Japan for a sales opportunity before joining Microsoft. In my experience, experience is the best teacher. His varied education and professional background enables Dennis to see the world in ways others don't. That, combined with his grit and tenacity, will allow him to run at targets others don't know exist. Entrepreneurs, by definition, create new things. Dennis has the background and personal characteristics to be a great entrepreneur.
