Chief Product Officerand Co-founder

As Chief Product Officer, Dan Veltri defines the Weebly experience and focuses his efforts to simplify the complex. Working hands on with his design team, Dan strives to create interfaces that are clean, intuitive, and surprisingly easy. Dan prefers to build wireframes with pen and paper and has an uncanny knack for spotting when something is off by 1 pixel.

Before Weebly, Dan graduated from the Honors College of Penn State University with a Bachelors of Finance and completed internships with General Electric, Johnson & Johnson, and Bear Sterns. Always having a passion for technology and user experience, Dan, along with fellow co-founders Chris Fanini and David Rusenko, developed Weebly from their Penn State dorm room to enable anyone to create a unique, high quality site with no HTML experience.

Today, over 140 million people a month visit one of the 20 million sites created on Weebly. Named one of TIME Magazine’s 50 Best Websites of 2007, Weebly has been featured in Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal, Inc., NBC and more.

Dan was a recipient of the prestigious Penn State Alumni Association Achievement Award in 2012. In his spare time, Dan enjoys international travel, spicy food, and playing intramural softball with his Weebly co-workers.
