Dan is one of Votion’s most involved managers, overseeing several client accounts within our office. “Dan is one of those individuals who keeps asking for more information and knowledge as he progresses towards the next step he’s aiming to achieve,” said Cassie, Votion’s CEO. “It’s great that he’s so goal driven, and it motivates others to try to keep up with him.” According to Dan, he was not always in that mindset. It is a habit he acquired since being hired at Votion. “Learning to lead and build people has taught me to be more responsible,” said Dan. “I’m no longer just responsible for me. I have a team that I have to set a good example for and help as they need it.” Dan is a self-proclaimed introvert in his personal life, but, according to Votion’s Human Resources team, that is not something that others would guess about him. “Being in a group of outgoing, super communicators has made me more charismatic,” explained Dan. “I absorbed the advice given to me from my mentors, and now I can now start a genuine conversation with just about anyone.” He continued to express his desire to help people reach their full career potential as his ultimate goal. “If you know how to be successful, why wouldn’t you share that knowledge with others?,” said Dan.
Outside of work, Dan enjoys playing (and watching) soccer and hockey, white water rafting, and kayaking. His favorite soccer team is the Portland Timbers, and he roots for the Anaheim Ducks in hockey. Dan is competitive by nature, sharing that he “grew up in locker rooms” while playing various sports.
