Dan Cross is the talent acquisition strategy manager for Capital One's Retail & Direct Bank. He is particularly passionate about two things: basketball and talent. Unfortunately, he was never drafted into the NBA, so he embraced a career in recruiting/HR instead. Driven by data, he challenges conventional people practices through the use of analytics, human-centered design, and agile methodologies. He was recently named to the "30 under 30 HR Professionals" list in SHRM's HR Magazine. A passionate disability employment advocate, he was the co-founder of his organization's employee resource group for people with disabilities, and regularly volunteers his time as a vocational rehabilitation specialist and Special Olympics coach.
