Dan Breene

Executive Coach
Lake Oswego, OR

Recognized as a highly skilled business executive with more than 40 years of experience in the financial services and technology industries, Dan had been mentoring and coaching informally for years before joining Building Champions.

Dan's extensive business experience includes past C-level positions ranging from CEO, Vice Chairman, President and CFO at companies including Crocker Bank, Transamerica, GE Capital, Westinghouse Credit, PacifiCorp Financial Services, Tektronix and Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. as well as two technology startups.

His passion for excellence comes from his U.S. Military service as a nuclear weapons courier officer. Says Dan, "It goes back to my training – you are responsible for everything your organization does, or fails to do."

Dan joined Building Champions in 2014 to help business leaders build stronger teams and become more successful in work and at home. Dan's broad business knowledge, combined with his conviction in faith and respect for others, has resulted in measurable progress for his clients.

He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Business and Economics from Lehigh University and his MBA degree from San Francisco State University. He also completed the GE Executive Development Course.

Dan and Jerri, his wife of 42 years, reside in Lake Oswego, Oregon, and have two grown daughters. Dan serves as a Eucharistic Minister and on the Finance and Investment Oversight Committees of Christ Episcopal Church in Lake Oswego as well as several committees and Toastmasters at Arlington Club in Portland, Oregon. When he is not working, Dan enjoys wine, cooking, auto racing, snow skiing, and playing bad golf.

"Dan has really helped me to develop a vision and strategy for my department. I have incorporated the simple business plan process for my management team as well. In addition, Dan is challenging me on some of my personal goals. I could not be more pleased with my personal development over the last two years, and I attribute a good portion of that to the coaching relationship."
