Flynn CXO Dan Beca Named to RBJ Forty Under 40



Beca is one of 40 trailblazing executives who embody leadership and community excellence

ROCHESTER, New York, Sept. 28, 2022 – Flynn Chief Experience Officer Dan Beca has been named to the RBJ’s Forty Under 40 list. The annual awards recognize the Greater Rochester Region’s top executives contributing at the highest levels to both their professional organizations and the broader community.

Beca joined Flynn from Catalyst in 2019 to elevate and lead the agency’s marketing technology and web development disciplines, expanding the offering into Customer Experience Management (CXM), today one of the agency’s three core offerings. Under Beca’s leadership, Flynn expanded its CXM offering to include eight full-time staff working across customer experience research, strategy, measurement, and innovation. Beca’s team has also earned certifications spanning CCXP, Forrester CX and Customer Journey Mapping, and Lean Six Sigma.

In January 2022, after helping the agency achieve 350% revenue growth over three years, Beca was promoted to the Flynn Senior Management Team to help drive overall agency strategy and operations as the agency’s first Chief Experience Officer.

Clients who’ve worked with Beca, many navigating highly regulated industries such as insurance, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and financial services, praise his extremely thoughtful and data-driven approach to every project. Clients rely on him as the agency’s go-to subject matter expert in customer experience best practices.

Beca is also an active voice in new business conversations, ensuring prospective clients are armed with the information they need to confidently solve their business challenge – whether that’s finding efficiencies in the customer journey, uniting and streamlining customer data from disparate sources, or something entirely new. This thorough approach to building trusted client relationships has helped earn Flynn a spot on the Inc. 5000 list for the past two years running.

Beca earned his MBA from the Rochester Institute of Technology, where he also gives his time as an adjunct professor educating the next generation of digital marketers since 2018.

“Dan is the first to roll up his sleeves and push for excellence in everything we do. At the same time, he leads by example in prioritizing his family time and maintaining a healthy work-life balance – something we vigorously champion and defend here at Flynn,” said Chris Flynn, CEO. “I cannot speak highly enough about his character and his desire to create meaningful, positive change for our staff and our clients.”
