Dan is native to the Treasure Valley and a successful entrepreneur who has founded and exited several local companies. He joined Health Insurance Associates in 2004 as a benefits consultant and purchased the company in 2013. Under his leadership HIA has seen an average of 30% growth in each of the last 5 years and has become one of the leading benefits consulting firms in the state. He is a hands on leader who inspires everyone around him. He claims he is successful because he surrounds himself with good people (which is true) but Dan has a way of bringing out the best in everyone. He finds joy in helping companies not only improve their bottom line by cutting health care cost but he also helps in many untraditional ways well beyond what most brokers do. He is a true friend and advocate for his clients and offers unmatched experience in employee benefits, problem solving, financial analysis, mergers and acquisitions and much more.
