Hi! I’m Dan!
You may be asking, “Why mProactive?” And that’s a good question…
Well… I’ve always loved computers and technology. Some of my earliest memories are of me messing around with the family’s TRS-80 (if you’re too young or too cool to know, that’s a really old computer, and it was the first one my family owned).
As the years went by, the computers got more sophisticated, and my obsession grew. Any free time I had was spent either using a computer or learning about them. By age 11, I had already built my very first computer, and there were many more to come.
When the internet became commonplace, my interest in IT deepened. The world opened to me, and I loved “all things IT.” You could say a career in IT was an obvious choice for me.
After studying at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, I realized that my true passion was still in IT. However, art has always been by my side, and I started my career as a Graphic Designer after receiving all my certifications from Adobe. I began working as an IT consultant, but after a few years, I moved on to work at a popular University in New Hampshire as a System Administrator and Webmaster. When I moved to Pennsylvania in 2008, I worked as a Government Contractor. I really enjoyed that job… Problem-solving, creative solutions, and seeing the difference I was making to the companies I worked with. It was very rewarding.
From there, I had the pleasure of working with and being the Director of Software Development with one of the world’s largest certified garment decorators and fulfillment centers. There, I was able to work with most of the major sports leagues, such as the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL, and some of the largest brands in apparel, like Nike, New Balance, Reebok, Puma, Addidas, Under Armour, and more!
But while I loved my job and the people I worked with, I found I was becoming frustrated with the way that the public (and private sectors) did things. I soon found out that the customers didn’t always come first. It wasn’t part of the role to help our customers grow and improve. The customer wasn’t at the heart of everything that was being done. And to me, it was clear that profit was way more important than people, and that seemed wrong. After all, their success would be our success.
So, in 2012, I took the leap of faith and established mProactive, and I have never looked back. Since then, we have grown in exactly the way I hoped for. We have an amazing team that provides the attention and quality service that your business deserves, and I can be proud of. We get to work with small to medium-sized businesses just like you and have the privilege of being their trusted IT Support and Digital Marketing partner.
Our mission is simple – invest in each and every business we work with, celebrating their success as if it were our own. Because really, it is.
And as for me? Knowing that we have played a part in helping each business we work with be successful at what [they] do is the greatest reward. I wouldn’t change it for anything.
I hope to hear from you soon. 🙂
