Dan Barger Chief Financial Officer firstname.lastname@example.org
Dan Barger grew up in Pennsylvania, and graduated with a BS in Accounting from Penn State Behrend in Erie, PA. Before his "real" professional work began, Dan served in the U.S. Marine Corps where he had the good fortune to see many parts of the world...some good and some not so good.
Before moving to Hampton Roads in 2003 and while working for one of the largest U.S. Defense contractors, Dan earned his MBA from the University of Rhode Island's Executive MBA program. While working in the Government and Defense sector Dan has been a contracts, finance and accounting professional for large and small companies, both public and private, in positions of responsibility ranging from individual contributor to Chief Financial Officer. These professional opportunities have afforded him the opportunity to work on submarines, robotic systems, U.S. Navy and commercial maritime programs, build an expeditionary cellular network in Afghanistan, and support manufacturing of technical military communications equipment.
After more than 15 years of working in the Government and Defense sector, Dan transitioned to the more rewarding mission of not-for-profit. As a not-for-profit Chief Financial Officer in the food banking and now youth services, Dan finds the work more gratifying and impactful.
When he’s not at work making magic with Excel or grinding out the next best direction for the team, you might find him in the yoga studio, helping friends and neighbors with Handyman projects or relaxing with people he loves.
