Dan's Green Shoes

Got my green shoes on!

About Me

My name is Dan Hickman , Chief Technology Officer of ProModel Corporation.  I’m a technologist, husband, father and soccer coach.  I work out of the Ann Arbor office for the technology team at ProModel, but this blog, its content and opinions are my own.

During the past 12 years, I have been involved in several ProModel divisions, including onsite support, consulting, product development, sales, support and training. In 2002, I was promoted to Director of New Products, with the responsibility of running development of new products at ProModel.

Prior to my role as Director of New Products, I founded CadreSoft Corporation in 1999.  CadreSoft embedded ProModel technology which I feel innovated new approaches to solving capacity problems through discrete event simulation.

In 2007 I was named CTO, assuming full management responsibility for delivering on the company’s mission of enterprise decision modeling through predictive simulation solutions.  I think a summary would be, I have a true passion for creating software that drives strategic decision-making.

I grew up near Detroit, where my father worked at General Motors. I have a B.S. in Industrial Engineering from Western Michigan University.  I have an incredible family that I love spending time with.

Some other things about me you might find interesting.

I have a lefty Simian Line.

I collect pictures of people shoes they cut the grass with.  See them in the Shed.

My genealogy research suggests my surname is not Hickman.

I am a soccer coach for my son’s Ninja team and my daughter’s Gator team.

    Thank you for your efforts with this!
