Name:Dan Ebersold

Organization & Job Title: Gates Flag and Banner Co – Director of Operations

How many years have you been with your organization? On and off 16 years

What's your favorite part of your job? Selling America. Working with Veterans Groups. The daily grind of being a business owner.

What is your favorite part of being an Ambassador? Selling the Lynchburg Region. Working with local businesses and finding ways to help us grow together in the region.

How has Alliance membership benefitted your business? It has provided me the opportunity to introduce my company to a large number of businesses which would have been very difficult to do otherwise.

What is your single best piece of advice to new members, so they can take full advantage of their membership? Show up, be present, engage.

Do you have any advice for someone who is considering becoming an Alliance member? I believe NIKE and Shia LaBeouf said it best when they said “Just Do It”.

What is your favorite quote to live by and why? “The 2 most important days of your life are the day you were born and the day you figure out why."

What is one thing about yourself that others wouldn't necessarily know? I am formerly a PGA golf professional.

What could you give a presentation on or talk about for hours without any preparation? I have a unique ability to retain sport information. 90% of this would be considered useless, yet, it takes up a tremendous amount of real estate in my head.

How else are you involved in the community? I volunteer as a coach and mentor.

When I'm not at work I like to? Hang with my family. Be outdoors. Work around the house.

What is your go-to eating spot? The Water Dog – Crabby Poppa but as a quesadilla.

What is your favorite item you've purchased this year? Awesome Nike Jordan chrome golf shoes that I am afraid to take out the box.

What are you reading or listening to right now? Because I am on the road a lot, I listen to podcasts. I am a true crime junkie so any person that has a voice that will keep me awake and a good story is at the top of the list.

Favorite vacay spot? Hilton Head – because it was the first place that my wife and I traveled with the kids, just the 5 of us.

What's a fun thing you like to do in the Lynchburg Region? Be outside enjoying everything.
