Chief Innovative Officer
With nothing more than $250 in his pocket and a big idea in his head, Daniel set out in 1999 to start a computer service and repair business. He was still in high school. Through four years of college and beyond, his big idea just keeps evolving and expanding – with no end in sight. While building one of the nation’s fastest-growing telecoms and a regional leader in fiber-optic solutions, Daniel has served as mayor of Buhler, Kansas, as well as on economic development and college advisory boards. He and his wife have four children.
