Daniel is UNA’s seasoned Vice President of Sales. He’s an adept entrepreneur with a demonstrated history of launching small business startups. Most importantly, he understands how vision connects with practical sales strategies. He’s skilled at developing processes, strategic planning, and generally bringing order to chaos. Daniel moves the needle at UNA not only by driving revenue and scaling success but also by championing authentic company culture.
Daniel attended the University of Kansas and studied Mass Communications and Psychology. But his favorite part of his college experience was being a Group Coordinator for The Boys and Girls Club of America. It was there that he discovered his passion for working for a values-driven organization, where he could make a tangible impact. After college, Daniel worked for a Direct Sales Organization, where he met UNA President Anthony Clervi.
They quickly became close colleagues and friends. Daniel was continually inspired by how Anthony lived his life and built his business, and eventually, he decided he wanted to be part of it.
The biggest reason Daniel joined UNA was that he wanted to “write his own future.” He wanted to be part of a company where there was no ceiling. Plus, he was downright intrigued by Group Purchasing — how it was relevant to every business, every association, across industries.
