Our Team

"At the start, my personal and professional life became intertwined immediately. Being a part of the family, we have to get to know folks, how great they are as people, and trust in what they do."

- Jeff Dix, PLA, Co-Founder of Dix.Hite + Partners, who was promoted in 2017 to the position of "Chief Dreamer"

Jeff and Debbie Dix helped establish a strong culture of collaboration and flexibility from their first days at the company, which Jeff co-founded with Chris Hite in 1996. In 2017, Jeff and Debbie took promotions to become the firm's "chief dreamers" as they prepared to spend more time traveling and adventuring. Jeff and Debbie will always be welcomed home at Dix.Hite.
