Alumnus named to '40 Under 40' list
NDSU alumnus Daniel Abeln is rapidly forming a successful career as he helps build the region’s business infrastructure.
Abeln, BS ’06 environmental design, MArch ’07, architecture, who is the Project Manager, Architecture for EAPC Architects Engineers in Grand Forks, N.D., was recently named to Prairie Business magazine’s exclusive “40 Under 40” list.
The recognition honors the region’s top 40 business professionals under the age of 40. The honorees were acknowledged in the article “Rising to the Top” in the publication’s December issue.
“I am both honored and humbled to be recognized as part of this phenomenal group of professionals,” Abeln said of the recognition. “I am grateful to Prairie Business for their consideration, as well as EAPC for the opportunities I have been given to develop as a leader.”
Abeln joined EAPC in 2010 and soon became known for his strong communication skills with both clients and colleagues. He is described as having a passion for providing customers with a superior level of quality control and efficiency improvement, and he is highly regarded for his project management abilities.
With his early career success, Abeln is quick to credit his alma mater. “To attend a top-notch institution like NDSU was not only a tremendous experience, it laid the foundation for everything that I will experience and accomplish,” Abeln said. “The practical approach that was taken to education and architecture provided the technical, analytical and professional skill set that I will continue to rely upon in my career as I work hard to live up to this award.”
Abeln, who also earned a Master of Business Administration at the University of Nebraska, is an associate member of the American Institute of Architects and a Leadership in Energy and Environment Design, known as LEED, accredited professional.
