In Honor of Ironman Dan
Updated: Jan 9
From the Guggenheim Museum, to the Golden Gate Bridge, the Empire State Building, or the Eiffel Tower, some the most impressive civic endeavors and infrastructure projects in history were built in less than five years.
Less well known - though only juuust slightly less impressive - are the achievements that AIQUEOUS has also engineered in that same amount of time.
Since our humble beginnings in 2015 AIQUEOUS has grown, matured, and continues to find more success in supporting and amplifying the positive impact that utilities have in their communities. And this, or our, version of a civic endeavor owes a great deal to AIQUEOUS' co-founder, Dan Merchant.
Ironman Dan - who's never said no to a race he could run or a start up he could start - has lead AIQUEOUS with as much determination and confidence as it took to compete in the 2013, 2015, and 2016 Boston Marathons, the Yellowstone - Teton 100 mile Ultramarathon, oh and "just a couple" of miscellaneous Marathons and Ironman Triathlons. Indeed, the endurance and sheer willpower that is required to persevere in these physical feats are also what has enabled Dan to help build AIQUEOUS into what it is today.
It is therefore with heavy feet that we must drag ourselves to announce the departure of Ironman Dan - who will be running down another dream with his family and new baby daughter in Boulder, Colorado. Nevertheless, and without a doubt, he has made it to the Mt.Rushmore of AIQUEOUS *. He is one of our company's jogfathers, and we will take shoelace in the fact that he truly got us off to a running start. Thank you Dan for all your hard work and we wish you the best in all your future endeavors. It's off to the races. Ready. Set. Go!
*and in less time than it took to complete that particular civic endeavor - Mt.Rushmore required 14 years to finish. Yet another competition won by Dan.
