Passions and Impact
Dalton's own interest in boating was sparked at a young age. While in high school, he ventured into the world of competitive sailing by joining the Melges 32 fleet in 2008. He soon began racing in the 52 Super Series and GL52 Class as well. In 2015, Dalton embarked on a notable adventure, leading a small crew in circumnavigating the globe. The two-year expedition brought Dalton and his crew to approximately 30 countries and made him the youngest Nordhavn watercraft owner to complete the 50,000-mile journey.
Dalton's leadership extends to additional DeVos family-owned ventures, including Wakestream Holdings and Amway. Through personal investment, he also supports innovative companies such as Orb Aerospace.
Driven by their faith, Dalton and his wife, Kelly DeVos, are committed to making a positive impact in their community. They support causes in a number of areas, including education, entrepreneurship, and health and wellbeing.
Dalton graduated from Grand Valley State University with a bachelor's degree in business and marketing. He and Kelly currently reside in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
