Dan brings over 30 years of experience in enterprise software leadership to SpringCM. After joining SpringCM's Board of Directors in the spring of 2016, Dan moved into the CEO role in early 2017.
As President of Ensighten, a digital marketing software company, Dan grew revenues by 4X in two years.
For over 11 years, Dan built and led Salesforce sales teams in the central US and nationwide. After joining Salesforce.com in 2002 when they had fewer than 150 employees and less than $50M in annual revenue, Dan helped fuel Salesforce.com’s growth to over 12,000 employees, over $4B in annual revenue, and 150,000+ customers. Dan is referenced by Marc Benioff, in his book, Behind the Cloud, as one of the inspiring leaders at Salesforce who shaped the successful cloud business model and culture.
As a member of the founding management team of Synchrony (sold in 2001 to Divine), Dan was the EVP of Worldwide Sales and Services. Dan’s sales career has also included successful leadership roles at Siebel Systems, Sybase, and Oracle — all during their IPO and expansion phases.

Dan and his wife are raising five children in the Chicago area.
