Dan Hlavachek, CEO
Dan’s first job out of college prepared him to lead, training distributors and operators throughout a 13-state territory and Canada for Bell Laboratories in Madison, Wisconsin. The fast-paced work kept him energized, and the business of sales became his calling.
In 1996, Dan carved out a working space in the kitchen of his West Milwaukee condo to sell onsite drug testing kits. He would cold call employers, occupational health clinics, staffing agencies and hospitals. Onsite drug testing kits were fairly new, so most companies were using a laboratory to test the samples. That meant waiting days for the results. Dan’s customers could now receive their results within a few minutes.
Today, Dan is recognized as a national leader in drug testing innovation. He manages Noble Diagnostics’ operations with an entrepreneur’s wisdom honed over a quarter century. As founder, he takes pride in directing strategy, innovation and implementation through collaboration with his trusted team.
