Find me on Social media using the links above.
My name is Dan Ziegler and I’m the CEO of YCDB; a coach, connector and consultant who has dedicated his life to guiding business owners with systems and solutions that improve a customers overall experience, leading to repeat sales in both on and offline environments.
I have enjoyed decades as a business executive, strategic thinker, innovator and thought leader. With a 30-year track record of award winning service and a love of sales, negotiations, investment, growth, idea creation, strategy and product launch; I take great pride in leveraging my “perspective”. Clients say I'm a heavy weight "Sparring Partner". Think you can go 15 rounds with me?
As a passionate leader in the service and hospitality industries; I credit my tenure as a former executive chef, Johnson & Wales graduate, multiple business owner, board member and consummate customer advocate for my vast knowledge and abilities to see what others don't.
Over the decades I’ve developed proven methodologies and implemented best practices in 5 unique industries leading to record setting revenue and a lasting tribal culture.
Knowing that consistent improvement leads to a truly rewarding and robust guest and employee experience; my personal as well as our companies mission stands for both You Can Do Better and You Can Dream Bigger.
I have failed magnificently over the years and succeeded beyond my expectations throughout my diverse career paths and my consistent “do better” attitude and attention to detail is what sets me apart.

I am a global traveler, passionate person who is not afraid to voice an opinion or share deep thoughts. If you want to connect on LinkedIn or Facebook, you can find those on the home page as well.
