Dan joined the ABA staff in December 2016 as a consultant to provide motorcoach expertise to the ABA membership.
Dan’s career in the motorcoach and bus industry has spanned more than 50 years. He has held a variety of positions from school bus driver to motorcoach driver, shop mechanic, operations manager, maintenance manager and has helped start and sold successfully two operating companies.
After 22 years in maintenance, an opportunity presented itself in 1984 to start a multifaceted company that re-sold used coaches, built coaches into motor homes, and sold new school buses.
In 1987 an opportunity presented itself to start an operational company, All West Coachlines in Sacramento, Calif., that thrived and was sold to Coach USA in 2000. Dan continued working with Coach USA as a regional vice president of the West Region until he retired June 30, 2016.
