President & Residential Sales
Dan began his career in the glass and glazing industry as an apprentice in 1983. He’s worked alongside the best tradesmen in the business and was among the first contractors in Florida to become state-certified in glass and glazing.
In 2015, Dan along with his son, Derek, bought Vero Glass & Mirror and quickly turned the struggling company into a successful family business. Dan’s mastery of the trades allows him to advise customers on what products will best fit their needs while assuring code compliance.
While Dan’s honest approach and work ethic is a driving force behind the company’s success, what he’s most proud of is being a leader to the next generation of glazing professionals. Dan is a Vero Beach native and enjoys traveling with wife, Tina, as well as spending time with their grandchildren. He also likes to play golf and being involved in the community.

A trusted, state-certified glass and glazing contractor, Derek’s vast knowledge of our products and their proper installation is a primary reason why Vero Glass & Mirror continues to earn accolades from clients and contractors alike.
Derek provides straightforward solutions to complicated projects. From intricate commercial projects to custom window and door installations with stunning ocean views, he and his team of expert tradespeople have built a reputation for exceeding expectations where others fall short.
While delivering superior service is a priority for Derek, it’s also important for him to give back to the community by supporting local charities. A Vero Beach native, Derek enjoys fishing, golfing and spending time outdoors with family and friends. He is married to his high school sweetheart, Stephanie, and is a proud father to their daughter, Saylor.
CFO & Human Resources
Working with family and friends might be challenging for some companies, but it’s the very reason why Vero Glass & Mirror retains highly skilled professionals and continues to provide exceptional customer service.
With 10 years of prior administrative experience, Stephanie wears many hats and performs many jobs. By managing company finances and human resources, Stephanie ensures employees are taken care of as our business continues to grow. She believes celebrating personal milestones and rewarding employees for a job well done ultimately leads to a higher quality of work and attention to detail.
Stephanie moved to Vero Beach during elementary school where she eventually fell in love with her high school sweetheart, Derek. She’s a devoted mother to their daughter, Saylor. When she’s not helping a customer or an employee, Stephanie can usually be found enjoying the beach with family or shopping with friends.

Steve and his family moved to Sebastian in 1970 as his father was a commercial fisherman. Steve was one of the last students to attend Sebastian Elementary and was in the first class at Sebastian Jr. High School.
