Robert Dyson

Mr. Dyson has a wide range of business interests and responsibilities. He is Chairman and CEO of the Dyson-Kissner-Moran Corp., a privately owned, diversified investment holding company that was founded by his father Charles H. Dyson in 1954.

The role of a community leader is one that comes naturally to Mr. Dyson. He is currently the Chairman of the Board of Marist College, a life member of the Board of Trustees of Cornell University and a board member of Health Quest Systems, Inc., the parent board of Vassar Brothers Medical Center and Northern Dutchess Hospital. Mr. Dyson has led the Dyson Foundation as President since 2000, distributing approximately $13,500,000 in grants annually.

Yet another interest—and passion—of Mr. Dyson’s is Dyson Racing, one of the top-rated sports car racing teams in the country. Dyson Racing has won almost all of the major professional International Motor Sports Association sanctioned races in the country, and has twice garnered overall wins in the prestigious Daytona 24 Hour competition. Mr. Dyson continues to drive for the race team.

Mr. Dyson holds a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from Marietta College and an MBA from the Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University.
