Daniel J. Burgner

Chief Operating Officer

During his 20-year tenure at Caruso Affiliated, Dan managed scores of programs that produced significant net revenue increases. He founded the strategic division that set new standards in the areas of fully integrated and immersive brand experiences and events, revenue generation, and new business platforms stemming from technology and broadcast opportunities. Prior to joining Caruso Affiliated, Dan oversaw the community and neighborhood properties of the Irvine Company as Vice President of Hollis & Associates and Portfolio Director of The Carlson Company. His career began in real estate development where he managed and developed industrial, R & D, hotel and retail properties with the Dillingham Corporation and Trojan Enterprises. Burgner Experiential, Inc. is a culmination of a career built by developing unique experiential programs for new and existing retail and mixed-use venues. Dan’s comprehensive work for now-iconic properties like The Grove in Los Angeles, The Commons at Calabasas and The Promenade at Westlake, have set new standards for developers and brands worldwide. Dan brings the same level of industry-leading performance to projects at every stage-from sponsorship and advertising, to new retail development, to overlays that breathe new life into existing properties. Dan spends his free time supporting several charitable and humanitarian efforts, including serving as Chairman of the Board for Habitat for Humanity, Greater Los Angeles and as Founder of Uganda 3:16-Clean Water and Medical Clinics. Just for fun, over the years, he has personally owned several food and wine businesses and has completed 12 marathons. He resides in Orange County with his wife of 30 years where they have raised four children.
