Dan Weller


Nothing behind me, everything ahead of me, as is ever so on the road.

— Jack Kerouac

The Stand Up

While Dan stands tall at over 6 feet, what we mean by ‘the stand up’ has nothing to do with height. He, first and foremost, stands up for others. We’re inspired by his soft spot for animals, his very first job at the local animal hospital and today volunteering at animal shelters. Dan loves meeting new people and helping them succeed, which is the perfect foundation for his research and client-facing responsibilities at Acertitude. When he doesn’t have his head down on a project, you can find him at comedy clubs doing stand up and laughing at others’ jokes, or at the dog park watching pups run by, of course. A few other traits make Dan stand out: he is optimistic, driven, and self-deprecating.

Dan brings nearly 10 years’ experience in research and sales with consulting firms, having supported the success of Fortune 500 leaders and teams. At Acertitude, Dan helps corporate and private equity clients solve their toughest people changes by identifying, engaging, and qualifying brilliant candidates. His passion for meeting new people and helping them succeed underpins his refreshing approach to search.

Most recently, Dan was the director of sales for a high-growth professional training and coaching firm, helping clients enhance team performance and leadership skills. Prior, he sold strategic consulting and marketing services as the director of sales for an online media company, promoted through a series of roles over five years.

When he is not at work, Dan can be found engaging in a plethora of activities and athletic pursuits. We’ve heard he is scary good at playing pool, having won several tournaments, and throwing heaters on the baseball field. On a Sunday afternoon, he also enjoys heading to the movies or the golf course.
