Dan Goman is the Founder and CEO of OWNZONES Entertainment Technologies, a pioneering technological force that’s transforming the Post Production and OTT industries with ground-breaking innovations, from digital supply chain solutions to unique, customizable video apps.
During the early stage of OWNZONES, Dan recognized that the company would achieve greater success by owning the streaming technology used for its content delivery system. He tasked himself and his talented team of software and tech experts to develop a solution. Since Dan was an early-adopter, the result of their R&D led to the development of a patent-pending technology within a year. Dan’s vision has positioned the company to be exceptional for its next-generation capabilities and fully IMF ready. Dan has now set his sights on market expansion, beginning with Europe and the introduction of several content technology-related initiatives.
A digital trailblazer, Dan has helped media companies such as Microsoft, Lucent Technologies and AT&T Wireless advance their technology. He is a graduate of the University of Maryland and put his technology career on the fast track with software companies in California and Texas before he landed at Lucent Technologies. His valuable experience at Lucent led him to Microsoft as a Software Developer/Network Management Specialist where he managed Microsoft’s entire network worldwide on all their devices.
Technology and computers come naturally to Dan, who hails from S.T.E.M.-focused Romania. When he was just a kid, his father had bought him an old IBM PC, complete with floppy discs. Dan spent hours programming it until one day when it finally crashed due to limited memory. Today, he enjoys hiking, perfecting his drone skills and working out at the gym.
