Dan DeKalb began his career with Star Building Systems in 1987 as an estimating intern while finishing his engineering degree at the University of Oklahoma. After graduating the following year, Dan accepted a full time position as a design engineer. Since that time, he has spent his entire professional career with Star holding positions in engineering, estimating, field sales, quality, product development, and drafting while also earning a professional engineering license in 20 states and completing his Master’s Degree in Business Administration.
The summer of 2008 brought new challenges when Dan accepted the position of Director of Product Development for NCI Building Systems overseeing and coordinating product standardization for all the metal building divisions and later overseeing corporate wide detailing initiatives. In 2014, Dan accepted the opportunity as Director of Drafting for Star to focus all of his time to improving production, service, and quality to the Star Builders.
When not at work, Dan spends most of his time with Lori, his wife of 25 years, and their two children. In his remaining time, Dan is a long distance Randonneur cyclist, gardener, and home brewer.
