Dan Bedell

Chief Operating Officer

Dan Bedell has a passion for operations and execution, developed over many years of working with companies from startups through Fortune 500 corporations. Trained as a project manager and later working as a consultant and an entrepreneur, Dan learned that good ideas poorly executed are even less valuable than average ideas well-executed. After several years in technology implementation and project management, Dan took over the operation of a construction company, which led to the founding of a solar company. After selling the solar company, Dan was an independent operations and execution consultant before joining ReachLocal to oversee international expansion and to build a global project management office.

Dan joined Scorpion because of the company’s audacious vision for the future of internet marketing, its focus on technology and design, and its overwhelming culture of exceeding clients’ expectations.


I’m extremely passionate about two things in business: culture and execution. You never see a great business that doesn’t have those two things nailed: awesome culture and a fanatical commitment to execution.


Dan holds a BBA in Economics from the University of North Texas, where he also spent a semester studying international comparative finance at Sheffield Hallam in England. He loves to help companies grow and volunteers as a mentor for Tech Wildcatters in Dallas, Texas.

When not working, Dan can be found watching his kids participate in high school sports, playing a little guitar or bass, maybe traveling, and always searching out local craft beer.
