Dan has been helping business owners and leaders build and realize value for more than 30 years. He spent the first 12 years of his raising capital and then serving as a boardroom strategy consultant to Fortune 500 companies at The Boston Consulting Group and two boutique consulting firms. In the late 1990s, he decided to pursue his passion for small and middle-market companies, so he started his own consulting practice, which he’s had ever since.
He has advised and assisted dozens of business owners, three of whom asked him to run their companies. So he knows first-hand the challenges of growing sales, making payroll, building and leading a team. He increased the value of one of the businesses he ran by 700% in less than 24 months.
Dan is a graduate of Whitman College and the Harvard Business School. He is a Certified Implementer of EOS®, the Entrepreneurial Operating System®, and has conducted more than 450 full-day EOS work sessions with more than 55 companies.
