With a background in engineering and nearly two decades of experience in business and IT, Dan knows that strategic thinking around technology can transform business operations and help organizations thrive in a competitive landscape. Highly analytical, Dan challenges his clients to consider the “why” questions before jumping to the “how” answers. Once he has had the chance to observe the people, processes and technology in place at an organization, Dan analyzes the situation in order to make appropriate recommendations for improvement.
“Implementing technology systems is the ‘easy’ part. First, organizations need to understand how technology and business strategy fit together in order to maximize the ability of those systems to achieve real, measurable results.” —Dan Levett
Dan sharpened his technical skills performing challenging tier III/tier IV network engineering and architecture work for PNC Bank, Brown Advisory and All Covered (formerly America’s Remote Help Desk). His background also includes strategic IT road mapping, project management and budget planning to reduce on-premise infrastructure, decentralize critical data and reduce overall support costs. In his role at Hartman, Dan knows that communication is key to any successful technology implementation. As such, he’s adept at breaking down highly technical concepts into terms and goals that resonate across all levels of an organization.
Out of the office, Dan uses his engineering know-how to complete various DIY projects around the house. He also enjoys spending time at the gym, riding his motorcycle with his wife, and supporting the animal community.
