Dan Bell, Senior Vice President, Americas Region, Marken

Dan Bell joined Marken in 2003 and is Senior Vice President, Americas Region. Dan is a licensed US Customs Broker and a Certified Customs Specialist with 25+ years of experience in the life science logistics & temperature control field. His current focus is regulatory and trade compliance aspects for global life science supply chain solutions. Dan has served as a liaison between his clients, customs and the alphabet soup of regulatory agencies to ensure the maximum level of compliance with trade laws and regulations.

His knowledge and experience in this arena have led to the development of many import strategies that have significantly reduced turn-around times, optimized cost and ensured that mission-critical objectives have been met or exceeded. As regulatory scrutiny continues to focus on the temperature-controlled supply chain, Dan’s expertise with thermo-regulating packaging solutions and temperature-logging devices has been critical to meeting the requirements of the recently updated Good Distribution Practices for pharmaceutical transport and similar guidelines.
