His accolades, including being named International Masters of Gaming Law Regulator of the Year in 2022 and earning the Len Foote Award for achievement and leadership from the Association of Racing Commissioners International (RCI) in 2007, reflect his dedication to advancing regulatory standards and industry best practices.

“I am honored to join Kindbridge’s advisory board and contribute to its groundbreaking work in mental healthcare,” said Dan Hartman. “Mental wellness is a critical component of overall health, and I am excited to collaborate with Kindbridge to drive meaningful change in how we approach and deliver mental healthcare services.”
