Dan Schmedlen is CEO of LTC Global, Inc., a national finance and insurance distribution company. Under Dan’s leadership, LTC Global has grown significantly and in July 2018 successfully executed the first-ever rated term securitization of long-term care insurance commission assets. Prior to joining LTC Global in 2007, Dan was a global finance partner in the New York City office of Nixon Peabody LLP. Dan earned a B.A. from Yale University and a J.D., cum laude, from Washington & Lee University School of Law, where he was an editor of the Law Review. Dan, who grew up in central Philadelphia with one brother, is a sixth-generation Irish American through his mother, with dozens of Hearn and McCaffrey aunts, uncles, and cousins. “Our extended family’s Irish warmth (including in song) and unconditional love contributed greatly to our confidence, both as boys, and adults,” he writes. Dan and his wife, Nida, and their three children, Jurgis, Elena and Henry, live in Cos Cob, Connecticut, where Dan coaches his sons’ tackle football teams and races dinghies in the Long Island Sound during the winter.
