Dan Dwight

Chair, MLC Board of Governors; President and CEO, Cooley Group; Executive Committee, NAM Board of Directors

Since his appointment as president, CEO and director of Cooley Group in 2011, Dan successfully repositioned the 90-year-old company around three pillars of sustainable growth (economic prosperity, environmental stewardship and social responsibility) while improving the health, well-being, engagement and ultimately the capacity for innovation of the entire Cooley Team. Under his leadership, Cooley has sustained revenue and profitability growth for seven consecutive years. During this time, Cooley generated more than 40 percent of its revenue from new products, won PBN Awards including “Healthiest Employer of Rhode Island” and “Product Innovation & Design,” and cultivated collaborative partnerships such that over 70 percent of Cooley’s revenue is managed under long-term customer supply agreements.
