Meet Our Fearless Leader, Dairel Denton, Jr.

Posted by Meredith Rines Posted on Jan 25 2016


As we’re beginning another tax season here at Denton and Associates, we want to take the time for you to get to know us.  We’re going to be doing a little “Meet the Staff” series here on our blog.  For a quick get-to-know-us, check out the About tab at the top of the page. 


Let’s start our series off with introducing our leader, Dairel L. Denton, Jr.

Dairel has lived in the Poplar Bluff area for most of his life.  He graduated from Poplar Bluff High School in the mid-1970s and attended Southeast Missouri State University where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration.  While attending college, he met Genise.  They’ve been married for over 36 years and have two children, Melissa and Meredith. 

Dairel loves bragging on his two girls – Melissa is an attorney living in the St. Louis area and Meredith is following in her dad’s footsteps to become a Certified Public Accountant and Certified Financial Planner®. 

Dairel and his wife share their home with two dogs, Zella and Cotton.  Dairel likes to only claim Zella has his and is adamant on telling others that Cotton is Genise’s dog.  But don’t let him fool you, he’s just as sweet and caring to Cotton as he is to Zella.

Dairel enjoys traveling to tropical locations with his wife.  He has visited the Caribbean several times and always finds something else to love when he goes.  He loves trying new places to snorkel and enjoys spending time on the beach reading a good book. 

Recently, Dairel was named as an Endorsed Local Provider from Dave Ramsey for his expertise in tax services.  He is proud of earning that designation and is happy to serve Poplar Bluff and the surrounding areas to bring Dave’s teachings to others.

Dairel is a Certified Public Accountant and Certified Financial Planner®.  He is happy to help you, your family and your business reach their goals.  Feel free to give him a call with an financial planning or tax related question.  He loves being able to assist his clients through life and help them reach their business and retirement goals.
