Since the age of 14, Dan has been an entrepreneur, with a focus on consumer product closeouts and technology. As a teenager, Dan would buy out obsolete first quality samples from showroom shelves and sell them at Flea Markets on the weekends. He later discovered it was less time consuming and more lucrative to wholesale larger volumes of merchandise to off-price retailers.
In 1995, Dan continued in the closeout wholesale genre, working for a division of United Overseas Group PLC, UniTrade Marketing Group, in New York City. After gaining valuable market experience there from some really great guys, they sadly parted ways and Dan founded the first online b2b marketplace for excess inventories, LiquidXS.com - a company dedicated to creating more liquidity for the traditionally fragmented closeout marketplace.
In 2008, Dan relocated to Montreal, Canada where he founded CroJack, a fresh, new and highly relevant approach to buying and selling closeouts.
