Dan Rohn joined GiveSmart™ in January 2013, through a business combination between GiveSmart™ and Dan’s former company, AuctionsByCellular Productions (ABCP). During 2012 at ABCP, a licensee of GiveSmart’s service platform, Dan worked with business partner Bob Treash to successfully introduce GiveSmart’s benefits to the US market. Dan’s involvement with mobile solutions for non-profit fundraising predates both GiveSmart and ABCP. As pioneers in the industry in 2008, Dan and Bob developed & delivered early mobile technologies specifically designed to manage silent auctions, maximize fundraising revenues and provide an interactive experience for patrons and donors at fundraising events.
At GiveSmart, Dan exploits his experience and passion for excellent customer service by spearheading the successful delivery of GiveSmart’s solutions to national accounts, strategic partnerships and opening new markets with new customers – where first impressions are especially important. Dan also works to market GiveSmart’s message to stakeholders in the non-profit and events management worlds to expand GiveSmart’s business opportunities
Prior to turning his efforts to non-profit fundraising, Dan was a telecommunications professional during that industry’s restructuring, new competition and new technologies stemming from the 1984 break up of the original AT&T monopoly. Dan served as a senior sales and service delivery professional, including National Sales Manager roles at an interexchange carrier, incumbent & competitive local exchange carriers, an online service provider and a mobile service provider. In these roles, Dan experienced firsthand the disruptive innovation of mobile applications to traditional business models, experience he has applied directly to the non-profit fundraising model.
A resident of Indianapolis, Dan studied Business Administration, at Gonzaga University, Spokane, Washington.

What Our Customers Say
As you know this was the first time that our Temple has used a bidding company during our annual auction. I can't tell you how happy I am that we did so. You service is more than efficient and easy to use. Having our auction online made us more money than we would have, had we done the traditional silent auction. Most of all it was all less work for me and I actually got to enjoy the event.
This was our first experience with mobile bidding and Give-Smart did a great job explaining how the mobile bidding system would work, what was expected of us, and the advantages of its use. The Give-Smart employees that we talked to were very friendly, easy to work with from the planning stage weeks before the event to the end of the evening. On the night of the event, check-In was a breeze, bidding went smoothly, and check-out was quick and simple. Very impressed with Give-Smart and would definitely use them for next years Silent Auction.
As an event planner, the best part about using the GiveSmart team is how easy they make running an auction. The increased revenue is nice, but the fact that I did not have to worry about check out, or monitoring the auction tables or the auction at all, gave me the freedom I needed to mingle with guests, network and take care of other event issues.
From entering the data on to our "Dash Board" to staffing our event with professional and helpful employees, our event was seamless. We exceeded our auction projections by gigantic proportions. Again GiveSmart proves themselves to be money well invested. So much so, I am here to say that I don't see myself ever having an event of such magnitude without GiveSmart at my side.
You and your team at GiveSmart have been a tremendous resource. From the early planning phases to event day GiveSmart has provided us with exceptional support and guidance. At our most important event of the year GiveSmart helped us to deliver a successful auction experience. Please extend our sincere appreciation to your team.
