Meet Reno-Tahoe YPN member Daniel Wadhams.

Daniel is the VP of Northern Nevada Operation at Golden Entertainment.


  1. How long have you been in the area?   I lived in Reno while attending the University of Nevada from 2005-2009. My wife and I moved back to Reno in August 2015. 


  1. What do you love about your business?    I love the challenge.  The gaming industry is a unique, fast paced and dynamic business environment that challenges me in every aspect of the business. 


  1. If I weren’t at work right now, I’d be….  Spending time with my beautiful wife, Courtney, and two kids.


  1. To me, networking is about….  Developing mutually beneficial relationships that help you grow personally and professionally.


  1. For new members- What do you want to get out of YPN?  YPN gives us a community of business professionals looking to make a positive impact in business and the Reno community.


  1. For renewing members- What do you get out of being a member of YPN?  YPN gives you access to a network of young professionals from a wide array of backgrounds and businesses to connect, support, and work with for the benefit of our businesses and communities.


  1. As young professionals in the area, we could enhance the community by … Empathy.  If we as young professionals put more emphasis on empathy in business and in the community we can continue to grow a culture of kindness and support in our communities and industries that contributes to a positive business environment.  


  1. Aside from necessities, what’s one thing could you not go a day without?  I can’t go a day without chewing gum.
