Dan Allers was born and raised in Minnesota. Growing up working on local farms, he learned the value of hard work at a young age. As one of seven brothers, he would be the only one to graduate high school and attend college.
After working for Home Depot as department manager, Dan formed his own construction company in 1998. As an owner operator, Dan managed every aspect of the company from Accounts Receivables to Public Relations to Business Development. He understands what it takes to balance and retain a healthy bottom line for budgeting and provide clients with the service and results they desired. Currently, Dan is a Project Manager for a local lighting and shading company, overseeing design and implementation of various residential and commercial lighting and audio-visual projects.
In 2012 Dan relocated to Fort Myers Beach and immediately immersed himself in the community by becoming a Chamber of Commerce Ambassador, where he worked to promote events that enrich our sense of community. He was appointed by the Town Council to the Bay Oaks Recreational Campus Advisory Board (BORCAB), where he served for two years. Prior to being elected for Town Council, Dan was appointed to the Local Planning Agency. As a licensed boat captain, Dan is helping fight our water quality issues as a member of Captains for Clean Water.
Dan and his wife Megan can often be found volunteering for local events, seen with friends supporting our local businesses, or enjoying our beaches and waterways by boat with their dog, Foley.
