In 1968, while an undergraduate at Trinity College (Hartford), Deke August became a Director of Snare Associates/Dorset Village Properties (DVP), his parents' company. He joined the office full time in 1990 following two decades as a corporate marketing executive with Ogilvy & Mather International.

The Dorset Hollow Corporation was a model for Vermont Act 250 Land Use laws and land use legislation in Hawaii.
