2020 — Dan Hilderbrand

Dan Hilderbrand

Winner of the Sam Tobey Lifetime Achievement Award for 2020

Dan first became acquainted with ASIC in 1996 when he attended his first ASIC National Conference.  Dan was encouraged to attend the meeting in Pleasanton, California, by long-time ASIC supporter and fellow Dura Plastic representative, Joe DiPiano.  Prior to the meeting, Dan had worked with Dave Davis, and was pleasantly surprised to see Dave at the conference. Dan recalls feeling very welcomed by the group and has been a strong promoter of ASIC ever since. 

ASIC is honored to be giving this award in recognition of Dan Hilderbrand’s outstanding advocacy of ASIC. Dan has been an attendee at every ASIC National or Regional Conference, except one, since 1996. Each year, he brings his professionalism and product knowledge to share with the other attendees.  Additionally, Dan is known for his positive attitude, infectious smile, and his unabashed support of ASIC.  He has personally reached out to several irrigation consultants who were not currently ASIC members and encouraged them to attend a conference or to join as a Professional Member.  Dan has thoroughly enjoyed being a member of ASIC and has especially enjoyed the relationships and friendships made and cultivated at the ASIC conferences. 

Dan has been with Dura Plastics since 1988, and currently serves as National Specifications Manager.   His responsibilities as an account sales manager include job site inspection and assessments; product support; and product selection recommendations.
