Dan Black

Dan Black

I am currently the VP of Business Development and Client Engagement at Tortal Training where I focus on growing the business while helping our 130 clients enhance the performance of their people. I report directly to the President and CEO on the performance of my team and partner with my peers in production to see over 2 million in Talent Development projects come to life every year. I came from being a strategic partner with two consulting companies, where I provided business development, sales marketing and messaging services to these organizations. My clients work with me because I build their effectiveness, get their business moving forward, discover innovative solutions to complex problems, and can help them to understand their customers.

There’s an unusually diverse background of experience that I bring to every engagement. I started with Price Waterhouse in 1991. My role was to recruit volunteers for a mail audit project where I grew the database from 6,000 to 29,000 before I left for Charlotte and Bank of America in 1996 . I learned a ton in two divisions where I was managing consumer loan portfolio pricing analytics and building skill gap software for Technology and Ops personnel.

The opportunity arose for me to purchase a Real Estate company and I spent the next 4 years implementing systems and processes that grew revenues by 600%. This gained the attention of the International ERA brand. In 2003, I partnered with The Training Academy to deliver business development training, sales management, business management and leadership development courses for ERA nationally. Meanwhile, having an eye for trends, I sold my Real Estate company in January of 2007 and focused solely on the training company which had grown beyond the Real Estate industry. In 2010, I sold my interest in The Training Company to spend more time with my new children and focus on a career locally.

Before taking this position, I spent a few years as a consultant helping small businesses manage and grow their companies. The community was important to me so I got involved as a business mentor for Queen City Forward and Packard Place which are both start up incubators. I also joined the Board of ATD Charlotte where I am now the President.

I live in Charlotte, NC, with my wife Blair and children, Mason and Sophia.
