Dale Mitchell


Dale graduated Santa Clara University with a BS in Accounting, received his CPA in California and Washington, and held employment at a CPA firm, investment trust company, real estate management firm, and large self storage company -  working as an auditor, controller, and CFO.

In 1993, he formed Datasite Northwest, a tape storage company.  In 2002, he expanded and created Datasite Business Archives, a box records storage company.  Then in 2006, a third division was added for data destruction of confidential records. The three companies were collectively known as The Datasite Companies - providing services to the entire Puget Sound area and becoming the largest independent Record Management Company in the Northwest.

In just 20 years, the company experienced steady growth and came to house over 200,000 tapes and 525,000 boxes in over 700,000 cubic feet of warehouse and vault storage - reaching revenues of over $5.6 million in 2013. In December 2013, Dale sold Datasite and proceeded to use his knowledge and experience to provide consulting to small and medium business in the industry.

Dale has assessed and evaluated over 10 companies in the records management industry. He was invited to share his industry perspective on Radio Channel/Show on Date Year. On his free time he is an avid skier, fly fisherman and traveler.
