Dan brings nearly two decades of strategy and management experience, spanning Fortune 500 companies, non-profits, and small-to-midsize businesses. Over his career, he has been instrumental in driving new initiatives, deepening relationships, and and improving processes. Results include new strategic partnerships and programs, streamlined HR and IT operations, and significant financial outcomes, including $5 million in realized cost savings and securing $4 million in new funding.

Previously, Dan served as Senior Consultant for CGI, a global business and IT consulting firm.

Why Ives?


The practice is named after Ives Hall at Cornell University, where Dan completed his Master's degree in Industrial-Labor Relations and Management. Ives Hall is known for its distinct structure and sense of openness, which is a good metaphor for Dan's approach to work.
