Dan serves as the President of BNI USA, which supports our 120+ US franchisees (“Executive Directors”) and also company-owned operations in the US. These combined Teams serve over 74,000 Members in over 3,500 Chapters across the US.
Dan’s BNI journey began as a Member; after a 15-year corporate career in Marketing, in 2012 Dan bought his own business and joined a BNI Chapter in Charlotte, NC. He served in several Chapter leadership roles and ultimately joined BNI Global in 2017 as a Regional Director for BNI-Southeast, leading his local Region. In 2018, BNI Global began re-purchasing other US regions from retiring franchisees and Dan’s Team assumed support. In 2020, Dan’s role was expanded to include company-owned Regions globally, located in the US, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. Dan was promoted in 2021 to combine resources/support for franchised and company-owned operations for the US – BNI’s largest and most established market.
Dan’s undergraduate degree in management is from the University of Michigan, and he completed his MBA from the University of Minnesota. Besides a love of business and entrepreneurship, Dan enjoys spending time with his three young children and his wife/business owner/BNI Member, Jackie.
