About Dan Tiernan
My Past Work

My first job out of college was with the Consulting Division of Arthur Andersen,
which became Andersen Consulting and is now the market leader in consulting
services, Accenture.

I left Accenture to help launch an ERP division for a product called Adage, at a
company named SCT.  After helping to grow this division from under $2 million a
year in revenue to over $50 million a year, in under three years, I left to start Atlas
Commerce.  Ultimately, this business was sold by SCT to Golden Gate Capital
and was the first of several ERP and supply chain solution companies that
became Infor, the third largest ERP provider.

3 years after starting Atlas we sold the business to Verticalnet, a dot.com darling
that transitioned from being a online provider of vertical marketplaces, to a
software company, with their acquisition of Atlas and their subsequent
purchases of Tigris and B2EMarkets.

10 months after leaving Verticalnet, I invested in SkillSurvey and led the
market-launch of this company as the CEO and am currently serving as a Board
Advisor.
