Meet Your Faculty-Dan Herlache

Department: Marketing

Where are you originally from?

I grew up in Sturgeon Bay, WI. I went to school at UW-W, and have lived in various cities throughout the State of Wisconsin. Currently we live in DeForest, just outside of Madison.

At what point did you decide you wanted to be a professor?

I was a manager for Federated Insurance and recruited on campuses.  I got involved with AMA and coaching sales students at UW-W.  I realized how much I loved teaching.  I went back to school and received my MBA. There was an opening in the Marketing Department, I applied and was hired.  I was retired from Federated Insurance to come teach full-time.

What do you enjoy most about teaching at UWW?

The students make it worthwhile.  It is a joy working with these young people, helping them to prepare for their future.

What are your hobbies outside of teaching?

My wife and I like to garden, cook, and camp.  I also enjoy hunting, fishing and photography.

What is an interesting fact about yourself? 

My wife and I raise varieties of hot peppers and make homemade Tabasco Sauce, and chili powder.  Our powder is being used by a gentleman who competes in barbeques in Texas.

What advice can you give to students about their college career?

Get involved, work, join organizations, do internships related to your field of interest.  As a former recruiter I always looked for students who had more than just a good GPA.  Joining an org. staying with it, and attaining a leadership position in that org, is always impressive.  Work experience in your field of interest is also very attractive to most employers.   Oh, and don’t forget to have fun while you are at it.

Fast facts:

Early bird or night owl? Both, early bird on weekdays, night owl on weekends.
One thing you cannot live without: People.
