#MDMC16 Speaker Feature: Dan Curran

By Chase Kohler
You could say Dan Curran has done it all. From serving as Ad club president and partner at Manifest Digital, to launching the leading marketing agency 10X Studios. This St. Louis based entrepreneur has consistently defined the digital landscape. Naturally, Dan was a perfect fit for MDMC16.
10X Studios was founded by the merging of Twist and Evolutionize. These two local firms have redefined the borders between earned and owned-media while providing unique marketing concepts for their clients. While the transition has just started, the local digital scene has already felt the impact- with employment from 10X expected to double in both St. Louis and Chicago.
In addition to his passion with brand activation, Dan is also an accomplished film director. His recent documentary ‘Saving St. Louis’ was met with warm reviews and screened on PBS. So what’s next for Mr. Curran and digital marketing? You can hear his thoughts during the ‘Social Media Strategy on a Dime for Small to Medium Sized Businesses” breakout session at 3:30 P.M.
