From birth, Dan Thrasher was surrounded by his parents’ family business. The company was founded in 1975, and at that time his bedroom doubled as the company headquarters!
People often ask Dan why he decided to work in the family business and he answers by saying “that is all I ever knew and I have a strong passion for it.” Dan’s parents encouraged him to go out and try something different. After graduating from Concordia University in St. Paul, Minnesota with a degree in Communications and Marketing, and working in sales for a publishing company, he decided to return home. Dan feels that when you really understand something and you enjoy doing it, it is hard to work in another area that is completely different.
Since that time, Dan has worked hard to become an expert in the foundation repair field. Dan is a Certified Waterproofing Professional and a Certified Foundation Specialist. Dan attends at least five industry seminars per year, and engages in training other employees on an ongoing basis.
Dan lives in Omaha with his wife, Heather, and children Jack and Alayna. He enjoys spending time with family, golf and home improvement projects.
“I know that when customers work with our teams they will get the best possible service in our industry,” Dan said. “The chance to see such dramatic turnarounds in people’s homes is really rewarding.”
At Thrasher, we work every day to challenge the status quo and provide an unparalleled experience for each of our customers. Dan’s leadership and commitment are key drivers of that mission.
