Dan Rollman

Dan Rollman is co-founder and CEO of RecordSetter, an digital media company showcasing the best in human achievement. The New Yorker says it’s “to the Guinness World Records as Wikipedia is to the Encyclopedia Britannica.” RecordSetter’s video-based platform hosts over 25,000 world records submitted from 90+ countries worldwide.

He is co-author of The RecordSetter Book of World Records, an Amazon Top 100 Book, and has appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, Good Morning America and CBS Sunday Morning. In 2010, he served as executive producer on “That’s a Record!”, an NBC TV pilot.

Prior to RecordSetter, Dan was an Emmy Award-winning copywriter and creative director, with two Super Bowl commercials (Pepsi, Emerald Nuts) to his credit. While working at Goodby, Silverstein and Partners, he helped create and launch national and global brand campaigns for Hewlett-Packard, Comcast and the NBA.

Dan interned at Late Night With Conan O’Brien in 1995, filling in as Conan’s assistant and appearing in multiple comedy sketches. He also had a small speaking role in Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut (1999), receiving credit as “Rowdy College Kid.”

He is creator of The Sabbath Manifesto, a project designed to carve out a weekly unplug within our increasingly digital lives. The Manifesto has sparked dialogue and action across religious communities worldwide, and been covered by CNN, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
