Dan Burns, EXOS

Chief Executive Officer

People call it the X-Factor or being in the zone; it’s that place where people perform at their highest level, at their full potential. What makes these people succeed? How do they get there? And what allows them to take that extra step from making it to making it happen? This is a question that Dan Burns once asked…and he’s found the answer. Please join AzBL as we welcome Dan Burns, Chief Executive Officer, EXOS on Thursday, March 1, 2018.
EXOS is a human performance company that helps people reach higher and achieve more. Why the name EXOS? It comes from the word “exosphere,” the highest level of the atmosphere. EXOS was started in the late ’90s with the belief that human performance is for everyone. Rather than confining themselves to established industries like health care, corporate wellness, or sports performance, EXOS believes that people, across all disciplines, should position themselves to take control of their health, and in doing so, they can succeed at anything. No matter your profession, from software engineer to sports star, you want to improve every day – and not just at work.

Performance is about achieving what matters to you, and that’s what matters to Dan Burns and the EXOS team. The company guides people to improve in the four pillars of human performance: Mindset, Nutrition, Movement, and Recovery. They also help people create an environment, whether physical or virtual, that helps them feel safe, supported, and in control of their health.

Imagine being the CEO of a company with tools this empowering. Yes, Dan Burns is definitely in the zone. After six years as the company’s Chief Operating Officer, Dan Burns was named Chief Executive Officer of EXOS in November 2009. Burns leads the company’s strategic planning process, directs business operations, and develops and manages key relationships with business partners. Since 2009, the company has grown significantly in size and impact, servicing elite athletes, military operators, and leading corporations and their employees. EXOS provides support to over 1 million people in more than 400 locations on six continents.

Prior to joining EXOS, Burns was Manager of Business Operations for the WNBA, where he served as a business advisor to the League President. His areas of responsibility included financial analysis, organizational growth, and player contract management. He also worked closely with WNBA teams to improve their operating performance, go figure. Burns previously spent two years as an Associate Consultant at the worldwide strategy consulting firm of Bain & Company, where his work focused on the media and consumer products industries. He earned his Master of Business Administration from Harvard Business School, where he served as Co-President of the Business of Sports Club. He received his Bachelor’s degree and graduated Magna Cum Laude from Amherst College.

Be sure to plan on attending this special AzBL evening, Thursday, March 1, 2018, with Dan Burns, a business leader who can tell you more about how and why you and your team can – and should – take it to the exosphere!
