Dan Beaulieu has over 30 years experience in the printed circuit board industry. He is considered one of the industry's top marketing and sales experts, as well as perhaps the strongest and most focused strategist in the industry.
Before co-founding D.B.Management Group, he served as the top sales executive in three major printed circuit board fabrication companies; Maine Electronics, General Circuits and Automated Systems Inc.
Dan is also a well-known industry writer and columnist writing sales and marketing columns in Circuitree, Printed Circuit Design and Manufacture, U.S. Tech and Printed Circuit News. He is currently a columnist for WWW.PCB007.COM the industry's leading on-line trade magazine where his column IT'S ONLY COMMON SENSE appears every Monday.
Dan is the co-author with Robert Tarzwell of the PCB 101 Handbook.
He is a writer of feature articles about various board shops and how they perform in the industry. He is always available for working with clients on their marketing communications and image and especially branding needs.
Since co-founding D.B.Management Group, Mr. Beaulieu has worked personally with over 100 companies including Prototron Circuits, Taiyo-America, Sierra Circuits, Hunter Technology and Rockwell Collins.
His specialty is helping companies increase their sales through the use of sales strategies and tactics, niche definition, marketing communications plans and managing, measuring and motivating sales forces. Having worked with independent sales reps for many years, Dan is particularly well suited for helping companies develop successful and profitable relationships with their reps.
Dan is particularly interested in and completely dedicated to helping board shops enhance their professional and technical image through sales and marketing. He feels that "Most companies in our industry have a sales and marketing executive that really spends 99.9% of his time on sales and .1% of his time on marketing. I consider it my job to fix that. Until we are completely dedicated to the concept of marketing ourselves, we will remain a second tier industry."
