This “Faces of ECI” profile focuses on Production Supervisor Dan Subler. Dan, who has been with Exhibit Concepts since 2015, first started as a carpenter before working his way into a supervisory role. From Star Wars to The Far Side, Dan is opening up in our latest “Faces of ECI” profile.
When did you start at Exhibit Concepts?
I started at Exhibit Concepts on August 2, 2015 as a bench carpenter.
Explain your current role.
I manage our production team, which includes everything from carpentry to painting to electrical work.
Describe your most impactful client moment.
My most memorable project was when I worked on a case for the Oklahoma City National Memorial. I was able to go out and install it. Because of that experience, I got a behind-the-scenes tour of the museum and it was overwhelming. It’s an experience I would have never gotten if it weren’t for ECI.
What do you like most about Exhibit Concepts?
What I like most about Exhibit Concepts is the people that I work with. We have accomplished so many things and did so many awesome projects. But I don’t really remember projects, I remember the situations with the people I’ve worked with and how we overcame them.
On a personal note...
My favorite thing to eat is T-bone steaks.
Favorite band or musician?
I don’t really have a favorite band or musician. But if I had to choose a song, it would be the Imperial March in Star Wars.
Favorite TV show?
My favorite TV show is Game of Thrones.
My favorite movie, and I don’t understand why, is The Shawshank Redemption.
Favorite book or author?
I don’t really have a favorite book or author. But, I find myself reading a lot of The Far Side comics. I like Gary Larson.
What is a super power you wish you had?
I wish I could snap my fingers and I would have stacks of untaxed money.
What is your ideal place to live?
I don’t really have an ideal place to live. All of my family lives in Ohio. I’ve never thought about living anywhere but Ohio. Now, as I get older, maybe some place where it’s warm.
What charitable cause is important to you?
The charitable causes most important to me are St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the American Cancer Society.
Who is one person you’d want to have dinner with? Past or present?
If I had one person in my life that I could have dinner with, it would be my dad. He passed away five years ago with cancer and I would like to see and talk with him again.
