A Conversation in Celebration of DHG's Accomplishments


During the month of August, we took a close look at our people strategy as we launched our DHG Voice team member survey. Through our survey, we are able to gather valuable feedback from our people to identify specific strengths and opportunities for improvement. Our goal is to build a high trust culture and a great place to work for all of our people. Effin Logue, our Chief People Officer, and I recently discussed via a video some of the outstanding accomplishments that were the result of feedback from our surveys. Click here to view a short video with highlights of our accomplishments and read below for excerpts from our

CEO Blog Takeover: Aligning Our Lives to Make an Impact in Our Communities


During the month of June, DHG hosted its seventh annual food drive, Count the Cans. Our people collectively volunteered, donated canned food and gave monetary support to our local food banks to fight hunger during the summer months. This year DHG donated more than 112,000 pounds of food and gave more than $76,000 to hunger relief organizations during the Count the Cans campaign. A passion for community outreach and philanthropic giving is part of who we are at DHG, and one of our firm leaders has lived out that passion throughout his life. This year, Pat Shuler became the President of the DHG Foundation, and he joins me this month to share his passion for serving our communities.

You are very passionate about giving back to the community.

Persistence, Accountability and Remembering to “Ring the Bell”


Martin Schlaeppi is retiring as our Chief Growth Officer at the end of May and will transition into the role of Managing Director for DHG Corporate Finance. Martin has had a profound effect on me and the entire firm in a number of ways, and I thought it only fitting that I recognize him and his many contributions this month.

I cannot recall many meetings with Martin that were not highlighted by The Rolling Stones’ “Start Me Up” ringtone cranking from his cell phone. It is a familiar sound that many of us have grown to love and expect when in the same room as Martin, but aside from his signature ringtone and the laughs that ensue, there are many things about Martin that I will carry with me after he moves on to his next role. These are just a

#MeToo – Fostering a Culture of Respect


Sexual harassment in the workplace is an incredibly relevant topic with widespread discussion evolving from the #MeToo anti-harassment movement. We are continuing the global conversation at DHG as we set expectations for workplace behavior and solidify a culture of respect to ensure that all of our people have what they need to progress and build their own valuable careers.

Last month we hosted an anti-harassment panel discussion that was streamed live across our DHG locations. Titled “#MeToo – Leadership Perspectives on the Current Movement and DHG’s Culture of Respect,” the session featured insight from four DHG leaders as well as a Q&A with our DHG audience. With so many important points made, I wanted to share some of these key takeaways with you.

To me, it’s

CEO Blog Takeover: Embracing Change


CEO Blog Takeover: Embracing Change

In January I talked about the importance of change adaptability in achieving our DHG mission and strengthening the change “muscle” within ourselves. Establishing change as a core competency is top-of-mind for us, so much so that we have welcomed Jeff Outten as our Director of Change Management. He has been a friend of DHG for many years and has helped guide us through many new initiatives and opportunities. We are excited to welcome him to the DHG team and look forward to the innovation and growth that will result from his leadership. I am pleased to have Jeff join me this month to share his vision for change at DHG.

Changing Together as ONE DHG

When we think about change, our immediate reaction is often apprehension and anxiety. It may be that we are content with the present, or we fear the inability to thrive in a different environment. Regardless of the underlying cause of our anxiety, when you look beyond the initial discomfort, change can be the catalyst that leads to new ideas, valuable new skills and innovative solutions. In building valuable careers with our people, DHG seeks to exercise our change adaptability to strengthen the change “muscle” within ourselves.

ONE DHG – Greater Together


The DHG we know today is the product of several firms merging together, and many people, cultures, ideas and ways of doing things uniting. We are proud of our many differences and what makes us unique as a firm, but we also recognize the need for an overarching mindset that encourages our people to be open-minded, flexible and willing to work in new and different ways - together. At its core, ONE DHG is about looking holistically at whether we are working together the best that we can and operating in a way that puts our mission first – building valuable careers with our people and helping our clients achieve their goals.

As we continue to grow and evolve as a firm, it is important for us to reflect on how we function best when we view ourselves as one unified team. We can

At the end of this month our Chairman, and my friend, Kent Satterfield, will begin his retirement. Throughout his tenure at DHG, Kent has been a mentor to many, truly embodying our DHG values and teaching us what it means to make an impact.
