Having worked with Dan for over 15 years at Ford Motor Company, in both sales and managment positions, I have always found Dan to be reliable, honest and very knowledgable. While Dan was the western National Sales Manager for Rotunda he increased sales over 25% in the first year in a tough market. Dan would be a asset to any organazation.”

Tom Russell

“Dan is self-motivated, requiring little or no supervision or direction to achieve the assigned goals. Dan's ability to analyze a situation and quickly determine creative, appropriate actions which enabled him to handle the largest, most difficult and demanding dealerships in our Region. Dan was the "best" Market Manager I ever had the privilege to supervise. Dan is also a "people" person, enabling him to develop the trust and confidence of everyone with whom he interacts. Dan is a leader. Other less capable or experienced Market Managers would seek out Dan for advise and direction, which Dan willingly provided. His leadership skills served Dan well in future assignments within Ford Motor Company. Dan is a compassionate volunteer, offering his talents to many outside organizations, where his leadership and results-oriented skills were also demonstated in the success of charitable organizations.”
