Active in his community, Dickson has spent the last 20 years volunteering at schools and coaching sports for his four sons.


He holds a degree in business administration from Colorado College and has participated in business programs at Harvard University, Stanford University, Wharton Business School, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
