Councilmember Daren Meis chose to help support the community by offering his time and talent and bring real-world corporate business experience to the Allen City Council. As a strong fiscal conservative, he is a staunch advocate for Allen taxpayers and a champion of transparency. Always seeking to identify areas of opportunity for improvement and pushing for data driven decision making, Daren is a proponent of a “smaller, smarter government”.
Earning a degree in aviation, Daren graduated from Kansas State University’s aeronautical program in 1991 and continued flying as a flight instructor and charter pilot. While still passionate and active in aviation, professionally he holds the position of Senior Director of Account Management for a S&P 500 company which provides online vehicle auctions and total loss claim services for the auto insurance industry. Responsible for nearly $300MM in annual revenue, negotiating multi-million-dollar contracts, working with various stakeholders, managing a team of National Account Managers, Account Managers and onsite personnel, while mitigating overall risk requires a certain aptitude and level of critical thinking. Stemming from a sense of responsibility, Daren willingly offers that very skill set to our residents.
