The Upromise Leadership Team
Constantly striving to be better at helping American families earn, save, and pay for college. We promise.
Upromise is a saving-for-college coach for families, with suggestions, guidance, and direction that I use in saving for my children.
Dave joined Sallie Mae in 2011. He is responsible for marketing and product management and also leads the strategic partnership with Barclaycard to offer the Upromise MasterCard®.
Before joining Upromise, Dave held a variety of senior roles overseeing customer engagement and loyalty programs at MBNA America and Bank of America.
A lacrosse player in high school and college, Dave values the positive impact that the coaching he received from family, friends, coaches, and business colleagues has had on his life. “Upromise can play that role for families as they take on the task of saving for their children’s education. Upromise is a saving-for-college coach for families, with suggestions, guidance, and direction that I use in saving for my children.”

As a new dad, I realize that we have 18 years to get our savings on track and help our child pay for part of her college tuition and expenses. That’s why it’s so important to start early.

Dan joined Upromise in 2011. He is responsible for working with retail, travel, restaurant, and credit card partners to offer members the most substantial earning opportunities.
Before Upromise, Dan spent a decade in the consumer banking and credit card business, first at Bank of America/MBNA and then at Barclaycard.
“Working at Upromise has made me realize the importance of starting early to save for college. As a new dad, I realize that we have 18 years to get our savings on track. Through our Upromise savings we'll be able to help pay for part of her college tuition and expenses. We're also opening a 529 plan so our savings, including our Upromise earnings, work even harder.”
Dan can’t wait to encourage his child to go to college. “My wife works in higher education and we met in college, so education is important to both of us. I loved my studies and the people I met; I want my child to have that same great experience.”
