Dan learned fairly early in life that things have a way of working out for the best. Little did he know when the financial markets crashed nearly a decade ago, derailing the launch of his financial analyst career, that this crisis would reward him with the real riches in life – a fulfilling career in the middle of one of the most beautiful destinations on earth.
In just a few years at The Gant, Dan has ascended from bell captain to director of revenue. Along the way he has enjoyed the best of Aspen and discovered the best of people in his colleagues, who are now, also good friends. Around town the entourage is affectionately known as The Gant Crew.
For a guy who knows how to take advantage of his backyard, be it an epic powder day, hiking and skiing the Highlands bowl, or chasing hockey pucks for fun, it’s hard to imagine Dan having as much fun or satisfaction managing portfolios locked away in a big city mega firm.
