Dean Hron

Dean joined Marathon in December 2014 at a time when Marathon was experiencing tremendous growth on our IT Advisory team. The needs that we had at that time were a perfect match for the skills that Dean possessed: smart, hardworking, business analysts with solid technical skills. While many consultants pride themselves on number of different engagements that they are involved in, Dean’s value has always manifested itself in longer term projects at fewer clients (Liberty Tax, Hampton City Schools, Anthem and Dollar Tree). At all these clients, Deans business and technical skills, combined with a solid work ethic and attention to detail, have made him an invaluable resource, no matter the project or the industry.
