Before joining Washington Fine Properties, Dana enjoyed a 17-year career with Mitel, a global leader in telecommunications, in various financial management roles, beginning in their U.S. Headquarters in Boca Raton, Florida. He relocated to Mitel's corporate offices in Ontario, Canada, to head corporate finance worldwide for one of the company's major divisions and subsequently became the Director of Corporate Finance across several divisions, overseeing all aspects of management support, planning, budgeting, forecasting and reporting. Dana managed the acquisition of RCA Business Telephone Systems, a competitive telecommunications company, overseeing their integration into Mitel's U.S. business. This ultimately required him to relocate to Mitel's U.S. headquarters in Reston, Virginia. After the successful integration of the acquisition, he became Head of Finance and Business Support for the U.S. operations before leaving Mitel in 2000 to establish Washington Fine Properties.
