CEO / SALES MANAGER / GIFTED LEADER
A master of the art of persuasion and a leader in the consulting profession, Dan has built a prominent career as an arbiter of business conflicts. He thrives on creating harmony out of chaos.
As a CEO/managing director, he is considered to be at his best when working with the business-task owner, the engagement team and a business owner to define the task and its underlying procedures. At the same time, he aligns the correct resources and tool sets to define, position, propose and execute a project.
The idea of contributing his expertise to fill a void among small-to-medium-sized businesses lies at the core of Legacy Analytics. Wishing to provide clients with needed services by honest, clean-living business experts, he and co-founder Donald J. Fletcher collected the most capable, educated and dedicated group of “white hats” ever assembled in one consulting firm.
Those who know Dan know that he and his business mission are the “real deal.”
Before joining Legacy, Dan was the co-founder and chief quality officer of Strategic Business Partners, an award-winning national for and nonprofit consulting firm that achieved the Better Business Bureau’s highest possible rating. He led the company from start-up to national prominence by winning both Consulting Magazine’s Small Jewel Award and many local awards during its years of prosperity.
He was also the managing director with profit and loss responsibility for 300+ direct employees and 100+ contract employees for a prominent international consulting firm's $35 million division in Milan, Italy.
He arrived at that position in 1994 with no Italian language skills and five unions with swollen ranks plaguing the division’s productivity. By the time Dan returned stateside in 2003, he was fluent in Italian, and the unions had been decimated due to his ability to persuade them to jettison controversy and “join the team.”
Dan has earned a bachelor’s degree in business, graduating Summa Cum Laude with induction into the Pinnacle Honor Society, from historic Ohio Christian University (Circleville, Ohio).
He is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Nonprofit Management from North Park University in Chicago where he expects to graduate late this year (2013).
Dan's volunteering is as important as his day job. His current donated time is split between: his time as a Certified Hospice Voluteer, Homeless Volunteer (PADS), Friendly Visitor (Luther Home in Arlington Heights), Saturday Ministry to Cook County Jail. As well, Dan served three weeks in Palestine as a CPT Delegate to "stand in the way of violence" in 2010 and serves on several nonprofit boards.
Dan earned his Eagle Scout status and two palms, was a delegate to the World Jamboree, and led three expeditions to Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, NM incluing the first co-ed expedition in the history of the Ranch.
He is a raw vegan in pristine health having run the 2013 Bank of America Chicago Marathon and maintaining a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do. His main hobby is his BMW 1200 RC Motorcycle, which you will see him riding as his main mode of transportation, and he is an avid Mennonite who serves on the Council of Christ Community Mennonite Church in Schaumburg, IL.
After lengthy scrutiny, the Federal Department of State gave Dan Top Secret Clearance on June 7, 2010. This prestigious clearance was never activated because he declined the Foreign Service Officer position for which he’d applied, but the Feds’ decision spoke volumes about the integrity and transparency of Dan’s past and present conduct and historical life behaviors.
