As the founder and CEO of Dronegenuity, Dan has a vested interest in the success of our tremendous pilot network, as well as our clients who trust us with their business needs. After hearing from numerous clients and in-network pilots about their desire to learn or improve specific drone-related skills, Dan saw an opportunity to elevate the drone industry as a whole - by launching Dronegenuity’s new course platform, to educate pilots and business clients on anything and everything related to drone operations. Dan’s management and leadership has helped propel Dronegenuity to the top ranks of drone service companies, and our course platform is no different. He has prior experience developing and teaching online courses, managing business development, and assisting with strategic and tactical marketing efforts.

Customer intimacy is the name of the game to Erik – he’s got deep experience in a diverse breadth of roles that required an in-depth understanding of stakeholders’ needs. Since joining the company, Erik has focused on establishing strong ties with both our pilot network, as well as our business clients, in order to better understand their fundamental needs. When the COVID-19 crisis hit, Erik worked tirelessly to release top-tier courses for anyone who wanted to break into the industry. He fundamentally believed that developing and launching Dronegenuity’s course platform was the single most impactful way that the company could contribute to elevating the drone industry across the country. This guiding mindset will continue to drive the growth of the course offerings for years to come, allowing more households to break into the drone industry, supplement their income, and gain targeted knowledge that will differentiate them from the pack.
