What is your name and current position?
Dan Colbert, BI Team Manager


How long have you been employed at Forecast5?
4.5 years

What office are you based out of?
Naperville

Why did you join Forecast5?
I was looking for a new challenge in my career, and my job at F5 came because of that.  Morning coffee with a friend became an afternoon interview, then a job offer the next day.  It was exciting to move from being a small part of a large company, to being a big part of an exciting new adventure.

What is the most interesting or favorite part of your job?
Being a data geek, I get excited about things many find boring.  I enjoy the process of taking data from almost 20 different states and fitting it into a homogenous environment.  Finding and fixing the oddities provides an enjoyable, unique challenge.

What are some cool projects you’ve seen our clients do with F5 products?
Being behind the scenes, I don’t get many opportunities to see actual client projects.  I do take pride in seeing the hard work of the Data Team used in presentations, brochures and training sessions.

What is your favorite movie/book/music?
I enjoy a lot of different music styles, but I have a special place in my heart for Traditional Celtic/Irish music.  It’s as if I’m connected to it at a cellular level.

Tell us one interesting fact about yourself?
My wife and I own an artisan coffee roasting business.
