Sharon Birkman
President & CEO
As a second-generation “Birkman”, Sharon is quick to tell you she also has one of the best second-careers ever. Her first career, alongside raising her three daughters, was all about music following a Master’s degree from the Univ. of Texas....
In her first career she got to perform in and direct musical stage productions, but since 2002 she’s enjoyed leading the Birkman team. She confesses to collecting “too many books” and likes to re-charge with long walks, NPR, and going to the theatre. Sharon and her husband Richard treasure time with her grandchildren Morgan, Declan, and Emerson (whose nickname “Lulu” appears to be sticking).

Dan Perryman
Vice President - Training & Consultant Development
When he isn’t spearheading Birkman’s strides in training and consultant development, Dan can be found cheering on any team that is playing against the Dallas Cowboys or Manchester United...
He also loves spending time with his wife Donna, or watching his guilty pleasure in movies, Drop Dead Gorgeous. Dan loves a good meal of arrosticini from Italia (lamb on a stick) any day. In his own words, “That’s it. No vegetables to mess with.”
