Dean of Students Neumann University

“Dan has a unique set of skills. His ability to develop leadership that is transformative is amazing. Dan has enabled many employees to reach greater potential than they ever believed possible. Dan is a man of integrity and balance. I would recommend him for any leadership formation/development program.”

Vice President Healthcare Industry Relations, ARAMARK Healthcare

“Dan combines his senior executive experience with insight into why healthcare is the way it is, and uses it to guide organizations with how to succeed with the way healthcare is going to be. But Dan is more than a talented healthcare executive; he is someone who is "confident in his skin." There is a paragraph in his book, "The Commencement", that sums up his philosophy: "True success involves more than fancy cars and career titles because those things can't do much for you when you are facing life's real challenges. True success involves things like family and friends who love you, a healthy lifestyle, and spiritual resources to keep you going." It quickly becomes clear why Dan is a success, and he is generous with helping others succeed as well.”

President & CEO Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network

“Thank you so much for your informative presentation with our senior team with regards to your approach to Leadership Assessment and Leadership Development. I was extremely impressed with the way you conducted the beginning of the interview with us, making everyone feel comfortable participating in a relevant conversation to ground us all. It is also extremely helpful that you have worked your way up through the healthcare system to become President and have had real life experiences understanding the importance of Leadership. I wanted to let you know that I personally can see how people would be very comfortable with you as a mentor”.
