As the newest member to the ITU Management team, Dan Cox brings exciting new energy into the company. Dan has an extensive background, working in many different industries with a diverse set of people.
Dan’s drive stems from when he started working at the age of 16 in the lumber industry, pushing a broom in the parking lot a couple of hours each day after school. Within a few short years, he worked his way up the ladder until he was managing some of the largest contractor accounts in the Pacific Northwest. In his spare time, he worked with troubled teens, counseling them into better paths to become successful adults. This personal and professional history has helped Dan oversee all of ITU’s training advisors by keeping them positive-minded, motivated, and always up do date with new resources for students.
Originally from Idaho, Dan moved to Florida because he was flat tired of the snow! He enjoys golfing, fishing, traveling, and most importantly, spending time with family and loved ones.
