My name is Dan Evans
I live with my family in San Antonio, TX where I work at USAA as the Director of Social Business Strategy. My wife Stephanie and I have three young children together, Brooke, Brighton & Boston. I served on active duty in the Marines for 13 years and wore many hats during my service. Initially, I joined as an infantry rifleman in the Marine Corps Reserve. In 2005 I volunteered to become a recruiter, a critical role supplying manpower for the war.
One thing led to another and I was quickly promoted to management roles in recruiting. Soon I was training recruiters on presentation and consultative selling skills, then learned and applied social media marketing to enhance the recruitment process. Taking the initiative earned my dream job where I’m now pioneering social business strategy in the corporate world.
One of my greatest life accomplishments was serving as a Gunnery Sergeant in the Marine Corps filling the role of Social Media Marketing Director. I frequently traveled across the U.S. training recruiters and briefing senior staff how using social media is the smartest way to recruit America’s next generation of Marines; empowering recruiters as brand ambassadors to tell the Marine Corps story with social media.
Professional accolades aside, I’m most proud and incredibly passionate about being a Husband and a Dad. There is nothing I love more than spending quality time with my family.
