Dan's mastery for both his core role, and the projects that extend beyond it, were critical to the company's growth. This rare mix of productivity and ambition set a great example for the rest of the team.
He is relentlessly committed to his team and truly invests in each individual by taking the time to bring out our latent abilities and help us develop our talents. Dan inspired me on a daily basis to step out of my comfort zone and grow as a creative professional.
Dan took obvious pleasure in putting his artistic talents to work to create a modern, approachable brand. He was a fantastic advocate for his department in determining the company's direction and his vision in terms of the brand aesthetic is still apparent today.
Dan was a wonderful manager who took time to help me learn the marketing skills I needed grow my career from intern to marketing coordinator. His passion for marketing and creating beautiful designs was apparent in the marketing content he created for Relola.
We are not a command and control company; Dan made that observation and used his soft communication skills to build relationships and get things done through collaboration and self-accountability.
In addition performing a top notch job Dan has always been willing to lend an extra hand, which is invaluable in running a small company. He often helps with duties far beyond his job description, and can be relied upon to chip in with nearly any task.
