Dee Haege – Vice President of Sales and Marketing

Prior to joining Jungle Lasers in the Fall of 2010, Dee worked in various capacities within New Jersey municipal government.  Her most recent role was as a Technical Assistant and Licensing Officer in the Construction Office, Township of Ocean, Monmouth County, New Jersey.  Her responsibilities in that position were very broad, enabling her involvement in many phases of community development including construction permitting, licensing, zoning, and boards of adjustment.

Dee also spent several years in the technology field working for Computer Associates, a global software technology company. While there, Dee worked as a Regional Sales Coordinator broadening her knowledge of not only the administrative side of sales but also hardware and software.

Since 2010, Dee’s role has notably expanded. Before she was named Vice President of Sales & Marketing, her primary focus was managing and expanding our relationships within the municipal government side of our business. Dee ensured that our customers were well served and that our development team understood their needs.  She acted as the liaison between our customers and our developers often offering valuable suggestions to both sides of that equation.

Dee’s primary responsibility now lies in moving our sales and marketing efforts forward for all Jungle Lasers products. Additionally, she works closely with all parties on bringing new products through the implementation process and oversees the related project management.   

When not working, Dee spends her time enjoying family, dance competitions with her daughters and vacationing. Dee also dedicates much of her free time to a local non-profit organization as the Chair of the Board and Co-Founder.
