In 2004, Dan joined a larger mechanical contractor in their TAB department. In 2007, Dan became certified as a NEBB Test & Balance Certified Professional. During his time there, his firm did several cleanroom, pharmacy, and laboratory projects where a certification firm would be brought  in to finish the projects. In 2006, Dan and others created their company’s Certification department. First order of business was to obtain his NSF-49  Accreditation which he did in 2008. Through trying to obtain his CPT Certification in 2008, it seemed like another organization would be needed. In 2009, Dan attended his first CETA Conference in Myrtle Beach and has attended them every year since then. Dan was part of the first group to take the written RCCP exam and completed the practical the following year.

In 2022, Dan joined his current firm as Vice President of Cleanroom Services where he is responsible for developing the department, acquiring & training new certification personnel, and growing new relationships with customers in key market  areas. Since coming on board, the department has seen exponential growth and has made his firm a strategic partner with numerous healthcare, clean manufacturing, pharmaceutical, and laboratory customers.

Through his membership in CETA over the years, Dan has served on the most recent CAG-003 committee, chaired the last CAG-008 committee, and is currently chairing the CAG-005 committee. Over the course of 27 years in the certification field Dan only thought it right to help pass along everything he has learned and help direct the industry to make sure they choose CETA as a professional resource. The next step is to serve as a member of the CETA Board of Directors. Dan would love everyone’s support in this election so he can continue to keep CETA the industry leading organization it is.
