Dennis Zatlin

It was in 2003 that Dennis and Linda Zatlin purchased Allied Resources. Based on the belief that he could scale the business through his strong relationships in the engineering sector, Dennis’ goal was to create a firm that was a cut above the rest.

Dennis spent 18 years in the engineering consulting space, as Vice President of Operations for a large firm, providing Engineering, Risk Mitigation and Project Delivery Services. It was during these 18 years that Dennis forged lifelong relationships with both clientele and engineering professionals within the petrochemical/refining, energy and heavy infrastructure industries. Dennis also perfected his craft of marrying strong accounting principles with project execution and customer service.

Dennis has embodied the philosophy that businesses are people-based, not project-based. He understands that investing in his employees, from the very beginning stages of their career, is an investment in the company’s future growth.

Mr. Zatlin is extremely philanthropic and continues to give back to the local community. He is an active Board Member of the GVCO and has been involved in several charities including: Bringing Hope Home, Toys for Tots, David Akers Kicks for Kids and the Children's Hospital Family Life Foundation.

Dennis, Linda and their two children reside in Malvern, Pa.
