Principal and Chief Executive Officer
A native north-westerner, Dan became interested in finance early in his thirty-plus year career when he started selling financial products for a national firm shortly after college. To help demonstrate how transactions would affect the client financially, Dan started designing explanatory spreadsheets. As he moved farther in the finance field, he continued to develop that early version into The Business Ferret.
Prior to starting his own firm, Dan worked for Moss Adams Advisory Services as a senior manager, consulting with businesses on diverse areas of finance. During his time with Moss Adams, Dan also traveled extensively to speak to brokerage firms about mergers and acquisitions and valuation. He continues to give seminars and workshops to his clients’ companies and to the public. Since 2005, through The Business Ferret, Dan has continued to work with businesses using his comprehensive, detailed analysis tool, to provide insight and guidance toward higher cash flow and reduced risk. When he is not working, Dan enjoys spending time with his extended family, reading, building models, and talking about cars with his son.
You can find Dan on LinkedIn.
Client Coordinator and Office Manager
Pam manages the administrative side of The Business Ferret office. She uses the organizational, research and people skills developed while working in the legal field so that Dan can focus on his clients. Pam schedules his time and handles the many administrative tasks that running a business entails, and will usually be the first person you encounter when you contact the Business Ferret office.
When she’s not working for the Business Ferret, Pam stages houses which she loves. She is an avid yoga practitioner, gardener and cook, and loves to spend time with her family and friends and volunteers as a CASA advocate for children.
Chief Technology Officer
Josh, Dan’s son, manages SEO and content on the TheBusinessFerret.com, while working on the next iteration of the analysis program. You can find him harassing his dad for more content, agonizing over user paths, and looking for the next important keyword.
