Syncro Leadership Team

Dale Van Aken
Chairman, Founder

Prior to that, Dale served in development, management and consulting roles for high-tech companies in the Northeast. With undergrad studies in Computer Science, Dale holds an MBA from Babson’s Olin Graduate School of Business. He has been twice recognized by Inc.
