Dan Storch joins Bridge Base Online as new Chief Operating Officer

Press Release

Sound the trumpets, we have a big announcement: Dan Storch has joined the BBO team as Chief Operating Officer. He was the Director of Marketing at the ACBL between 2017 and 2020. His wealth of marketing experience spans more than 20 years, working for household names such as Hewlett-Packard, Texas Instruments and Lexmark.

BBO are thrilled to welcome Dan on-board and are excited to have a leader who’s both bridge and business savvy. It’s a perfect match. In his free time Dan plays board games with his sons, cycles, enjoys a nice glass of red and has been a keen BBOer for over 12 years!

“Online play is the way to make bridge more accessible, especially to younger generations who don’t have time to enjoy live clubs. I’m also keen to work on other mind games for those who want a challenge but can’t yet commit to learning bridge. It’s an honor to use my professional experience to bring more people into the game.”

“I learned how to play bridge as a kid. We didn’t have any bridge clubs near home, so my dad decided to teach all his sons, hopeful he could fill a table for a decent rubber game. Later, while attending college, it was my turn to teach the basics
to some classmates. Who would imagine,
back then, that one of those friends would end up being Brazilian champion in 2016? (Disclosure: I didn’t teach him to play that well!)”
