Mr. Walulik is the Chief Financial Officer at Acceleration Partners.

Dan also develops and teaches advanced finance and accounting courses to MBA candidates at Southern NH University. He holds a mechanical engineering degree from the University of Rochester and an MBA from Syracuse University.

Mr. Walulik learned about Spaulding Youth Center through the Leadership New Hampshire program, where he met the organization’s President & CEO, Susan C. Ryan. He immediately knew he wanted to be a part of the organization and is excited to make a difference in the lives of the children and youth it serves.
