Dan Evans has joined the Fort Smith, Arkansas office of the CBI-Sunbelt Business Broker Network. Dan grew up in Fort Smith and has been in this area his entire adult life. After graduating from the University of Arkansas with a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Accounting he began his career in the local furniture industry. Arkansas Best Corporation subsequently purchased that company and Dan was absorbed into their accounting department where he served as a controller for various subsidiaries before migrating into the subsidiary tire company that became known as Treadco, Inc, the largest independent commercial tire company in the United States with 62 locations.
