Managing Director, Capital Markets
Dan leads Drexel Hamilton’s Capital Markets Group.
Dan joined the United States Marine Corps in 2003. He graduated officer training school and The Basic School in Quantico, VA in 2004 and was a Logistics officer stationed in Camp LeJeune NC from ’04-’08.
During his active duty, Dan was deployed to Iraq twice in 2005 and 2007 where he spent most of his time running convoys throughout Al Anbar Province. On April 22, 2007, during his second deployment – just two days after the birth of his daughter in Philadelphia – Dan’s convoy was attacked by a roadside improvised explosive device (IED). Dan’s vehicle rolled over from the blast. The two vehicles following his were destroyed and three Marines were killed. Although Dan lost most of the hearing in his right ear and damaged his left shoulder, he considers himself lucky and grateful that his injuries were minor in comparison to those of his fellow Marines that day.
After Dan was injured during his service, he was selected to be an instructor at the Basic School in Quanitco where all Marine Officers are trained.
During his military career, Dan received multiple awards: Operation Iraqi Freedom Medal twice; Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal; Navy Commendation Medal; and a Combat Action Ribbon.
In 2011, after completing the remainder of his active service obligation, Dan joined Drexel Hamilton on the equity desk. Following Drexel Hamilton’s model to pair a financial industry vet with a military veteran, Dan was mentored by seasoned equity traders and salespeople with decades of experience in the industry.
By 2013, he had assumed coverage of the Mid-Atlantic as the firm’s first dedicated salesperson covering the region. In 2016, Dan was promoted to Director of Capital Markets.
Dan is an ambassador for the Travis Manion Foundation’s Character Does Matter initiative.
Dan is graduate of Temple University in Philadelphia. He holds FINRA Licenses: 7, 63, 57, 79, and 24.
