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.
