In 2003, Dale Hartsfield became the family spokesman for the Hartsfield family when the City of Atlanta decided to rename the airport, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The controversy prompted Dale to write, What’s in a Name? Although not an author, he wanted to express his views and his perspective of the names that have been used for the "world’s busiest airport."

Dale Hartsfield is a native of Atlanta, growing up near the airport. He enjoys public speaking at both Christian and secular events, covering subjects from the Hartsfield name and his family's connection to the Atlanta Airport, to divorce, to living in a blended family and inspiring those to never give up on life’s challenges. He is a man of integrity and high moral character who strives to live according to his strong beliefs and principles. His unique style of storytelling combines his experience with instruction, suspense and humor.

Dale loves God first, his family, friends and country. He is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps and received his Business Communications degree from Kennesaw State University at age forty. He also attended Georgia Southern University and Atlanta Christian College.
