Our President's Heritage
Kale Hanson was born in Laramie, Wyoming at Ivinson Memorial - the nearest hospital to his hometown of Walden, Colorado. His parents, Don and Anna Hanson, raised their five sons on a cattle ranch in North Park, a natural basin in the Rocky Mountains. Kale and his four older brothers developed a strong work ethic by working long hours operating Lighting Ridge Ranch.
After completing his degree in Phoenix, Kale worked as a Cost Engineer and later as a Project Controls Manager for Brown and Root – living in numerous states such as Arizona, Oklahoma, West Virginia, and Southern California.
In 1997, Kale left the petro-chemical construction industry to pursue a financial practice in the Houston area. For sixteen years, he maintained an office in the Westchase District. In 2013, Kale purchased his current office in the Heights historic district in order to be more centrally located for his clients. In 2015, Open Range Financial Group, LLC was established.
When not in the office, Kale can be found spending time with his family, traveling, or mowing in his air-conditioned John Deere Tractor.
