Dell Loy Hansen is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of the Wasatch Group, and helms the overall management of Wasatch and its various affiliates.
Since his early homebuilder days, Mr. Hansen’s involvement in commercial and multi-family real estate development, construction, acquisition, sales, leasing, financing, and entitlement has shaped a company that provides expert service and leadership to many residential and commercial entities.

Mr. Hansen’s expectation for excellence affects the success of each company under the Wasatch umbrella. Efficiency is a hallmark of his leadership. From mounting solar paneling on top covered parking stalls at the renowned Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah, to funding renewable energy facilities in Sacramento, California, Mr. Hansen’s vision, innovation, and hands-on expertise have advanced the life quality, economy, and conservation for many businesses and communities in Arizona, California, Colorado, Utah, and Washington.
As developer, investor, and creator, Mr. Hansen’s ability to bring individuals, projects, and ideas together have notably benefited individuals and communities. He served as a chairman on the Governor’s Board of Business and Economic Development for the State of Utah under Governor Mike Leavitt, and on the committee for Utah’s Industrial Assistance Fund. Ever propitious, Mr. Hansen and his wife, Lynette, are major contributors to commendable students for Utah State University’s Hansen Scholars Foundation in the Huntsman School of Business. Mr. Hansen has also founded 11 other charitable foundations that benefit various needs in Utah. “We specialize in filling deserving needs,” Hansen says.
Among Mr. Hansen’s core values is education. A graduate from Utah State University in Political Science, he seeks out opportunities to help individuals to receive a quality education. “We are here to serve,” he says. “Our abilities may be our time or our resources but we as responsible people have no other choice if we truly value those around us.” Mr. Hansen leads out by example by donating time and funding to educational programs throughout Utah.
Mr. Hansen kindles a great love for sports. In addition to building youth training facilities, he is the owner of the Major League Soccer club, Real Salt Lake, and currently serves on the Utah Sports Commission Board.
A lifelong Utah resident, Mr. Hansen continues to keep deep roots in Cache Valley, with other residences in Salt Lake City, Utah, and Carlsbad, California.
