Dan Donathan

President

Dan Donathan founded Bellwether in 2008 with the vision of helping businesses get the most out of their technology, and since day one, he has been achieving that vision through long-lasting, collaborative partnerships with clients. Today, he continues to align exemplary IT support with strategic IT objectives and customer-focused methodologies to ensure that each client’s success story remains the sole path to revenue growth for Bellwether. Dan is actively involved in Bellwether’s client relationships, IT project rollouts and technical support services. He leverages over 15 years of IT management experience in helping clients outline long-term technology goals, and he enjoys the diversity of interacting with clients across many different industries.

Prior to founding Bellwether, Dan held a seat at the executive table for Fresno-based PrideStaff, where he earned respect from the team as a technology visionary and a customer-centric leader. In his role as Chief Information Officer, he defined and executed a strategic vision for the company based on the concept of a service-aligned organization, architected a highly scalable IT infrastructure to support an aggressive corporate growth strategy, hired and trained over half a dozen IT professionals, fostered client relationships, and managed business-critical technology projects. Before PrideStaff, he worked for a local IT consulting firm as a Systems and Network consultant, quickly gaining rank as the company’s most senior consultant during his seven-year tenure.

Dan is a seasoned Information Technology professional. He began his IT career as a Computer Technician for a major retailer, but has been passionate about technology for as long as he can remember. Dan maintains an extensive portfolio of technical credentials. He possesses superior knowledge and has demonstrated proficiency in scores of Microsoft products, both on the server side and the client side, as well as server architecture and maintenance, systems and network administration, LAN/WAN setup and management, Citrix rollouts and maintenance, Internet technologies, database-driven platforms, telecommunication systems, disaster recovery planning and programs, data backup and storage solutions, and much more. He has multiple Microsoft certifications and remains dedicated to the pursuit of Information Technology knowledge.

He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from California State University, Fresno, which is also his wife’s alma mater. Dan has lived in the Fresno area since he was a young child, and when he’s not working, he enjoys many of the outdoor activities that the region has to offer.
