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?
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.
