At home, we are family that’s overrun with boys. We are a very active family who share a passion for sports, nature, and animals. I am an advocate for children with special needs, and am a supporter of Surfers for Autism Awareness.

Senior Sales Rep
My name is Dan Perri, a senior sales representative and part of the Awning Works family for more than 20 years and going strong.
I have always enjoyed the energy generated by a new project, exciting new products and a variety new project opportunities. These many years working for Awning Works has provided me unique experience by being a part of many projects large and small from start to finish. I have worked with customers to enhance their home’s beauty and efficiency with a variety of products such as bahama shutters, new awnings of all shapes and sizes or just recovering existing awnings with a fresh new color. In my experience, many of my customers have dreams of creating an outdoor oasis for their family and friends to enjoy life. I am a gardener myself having worked years on creating my own unique backyard oasis to enjoy.
Awning Works is here for all your home enhancements. Awning Works is also here for commercial customers to make their business stand out, run more efficiently or change their image completely. Working with Awning Works over these many years has opened my eyes to a world of challenges, possibilities and opportunities — all while having the chance to work with some great people in the communities we serve.
Senior Sales Rep
I am a Senior Sales Representative at Awning Works Inc. and the nephew/cousin of the owners. I began my career in 2015 learning the business and handling sales in the Clearwater and Tampa area. Three years ago, I moved back to Orlando and is now handling the sales from Lakeland to North Central Florida to the East Coast. In these regions, I handle high profile customers such as Disney World, Legoland, Universal Studios and SeaWorld.
As an Orlando native, I attended and graduated from the University of Central Florida in 2014 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sports & Exercise Science.
Today, I am married to my wife, who is a neuro nurse at an Orlando hospital. When not working, my wife and I enjoy visiting new local restaurants/attractions and planning our next adventure to a new city or country.
Being a child of the USAF fundamentally shaped my personality and interests. I enjoy different cultures, traveling, observing patterns/nature/animals, and learning new things. No matter where I am in the world, books are my constant companion.
I am the Executive Administrator which, based on the needs of the company and staff, evolves daily. The development and refinement of the Dynamics 365 Customer Relationship Management system and Microsoft 365 Apps allows me to stay connected with, and expand, my technical knowledge. My focus tends to be operational in nature; building documentation and procedures to improve and/or clarify processes throughout the company. I strive to be a positive entity for my work-family at Awning Works.
“Thought transcends matter.” – George Bernard Shaw
As the Central Operator for Awning Works, I handle residential and commercial sales calls and emails for beautifully crafted shade solutions. I am thankful for the Sales Team’s patience as I learn.
Also, as the primary person for updating the company’s CRM records, it feels good knowing I’ve taken an important part in guiding our most crucial tool in a profitable and successful direction.
And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.
Personally, I strive to treat others with the same kindness Jesus has shown me. I hope that the customers I speak with daily hear my smile and know their business is valued and greatly appreciated.
Outside of AWI, my time is spent in Church, volunteering, helping my beloved grandmother at her wonderful burger joint, and going to the beach, as much as possible, for sun, sand, and wave therapy.
Project Management Team
As the Production Manager at Awning Works Incorporated my responsibilities include the oversight of 25+ employees and the production of design/build architectural products. With over 30 years in the construction industry, my past positions have given me a very balanced and broad knowledge base. Having worked in installation, sales, estimating, management, business development, as well as a small business owner, certified instructor, speaker and mentor, I have been able to develop high level oversight on all aspects of business. My focus in college leaned towards Psychology; this became a very important part of my foundation and direction throughout my career. I am human resource focused and spend the majority of my time developing and encouraging team connectivity. I believe the greatest ability I possess is that I enjoy what I do.
I have many years experience in project management with a wide variety of projects. My previous focus was with Top Tier Health Insurance Companies as well as the dental industry.
Here at Awning Works I’ll assist you with any questions you may have after your project goes into production, as well as keeping you up to date on the progress of your order, ensuring your project remains on track through completion and setting up install dates.
I was born and raised in Tampa, FL. After high school, I attended school for Digital Graphic Arts. In addition to working as a graphic artist, I have years of experience in customer service, tech support, accounts receivable and project management. In August 2017, I moved to St. Louis, MO. after being given an opportunity to transfer there, when the company I worked for closed our Tampa office. There, I worked as a Project Manager for the metal deco industry and my account was Anheuser-Busch. We made the labels/graphics printable on aluminum cans and bottles, producing the printing plates that we would ship to Anheuser-Busch’s various printers in the United States. In April 2020, at the start of the pandemic, I moved back home to Tampa to be closer to family.
Hobbies include the arts; such as drawing, painting, acting/community theater. Outdoor activities; such as running (I’ve run several 5K’s and a 10K for various charities), biking, swimming and kayaking. I also enjoy sports, television, movies, music and games. Most of all, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
I was born and raised in Louisiana. While earning my BA at Nicholls State University, I was introduced to project management in my Quantitative Business Analysis class. I instantly knew this was the career I was going to pursue.
I got (and remain) involved in local Project Management Institute (PMI) chapters, attended the PMI Global Congress by myself, and began taking PMI certified classes while in college. I lived in Louisiana, Hong Kong, and California; now, I reside here in Florida “The Sunshine State”. I enjoy traveling to new places, learning new things, meeting new people, and spending time with my puppy.
