Dana Dakin
Don't tell Dana Dakin she can't do something. Because then the highly competitive entrepreneur will do it.
Dana Dakin, Dakin Partners
One challenger inadvertently helped her break the glass ceiling. Dakin was working in the 1970s as the first woman executive at Callan Associates. She was calculating time-weighted returns and managed staff. But she was told by a well-meaning boss to forget about becoming a consultant.
She said he told her: "Men would never listen to women's investment advice, so I would never be able to move into the consulting side of the business."
Dakin would ultimately start her own consulting firm. She credits her former boss - who she says is "a great guy, but old-school," with jump-starting her career.
"You betcha. He did me a big favor," Dakin said.
In 1976, she founded Dakin Partners, a marketing consulting practice geared to institutional investment management and trading firms.
