AZPetVet is a family of 21 animal hospitals united with one vision: to provide the best comprehensive care for their highly valued patients and their pet parents. They provide complete veterinary care, from routine wellness and preventative care exams, vaccinations, spays and neuters, to treatments for dental care, illness, surgery, and advanced care such as acupuncture, stem cell therapy, chemotherapy and more.
Thirty-five years ago in 1984, the first location (Arrow Animal Hospital) was opened in Glendale, AZ. Since then, AZPetVet has experienced continued growth, while staying true to their community roots; each of their 21 hospitals across the Greater Phoenix area is locally owned and operated. With more than 100 veterinarians and over 600 veterinary and support professionals, the AZPetVet family provides a network of outstanding primary and preventative healthcare for pets.
As animal lovers and pet owners, they understand the connection between pet and owner – the human-animal bond. They are dedicated to providing their clients with the services, information, and resources to serve the total needs and enhance the life of every pet.
Daniel Burrell currently serves as the Director of Marketing for AZPetVet, a family of 21 animal hospitals with locations across the Greater Phoenix area. He has an incredible combination of sound financial/business smarts, strategic vision, and methodologies that help enhance every project he oversees. Under his watchful eye as a brand steward, teams are kept moving forward on task, on time, and on budget. He has a keen sense of how and when to ask the right questions, when to refocus the team on key points, and when to step back and watch the magic happen.
Daniel has successfully lead organizations through the development and implementation of strategic marketing plans, focused as a champion for brand consistency while increasing the marketing channel matrix. He understands how to restructure in order to expand capacity and adapt to changing market conditions, and has served as a driver for developing collaborative workflow management systems that positively impact both business financials as well as company morale.
Before joining AZPetVet, he ran a local advertising agency for 8 years (of which AZPetVet was a client), and prior to that he oversaw the operations of an architecture design/build firm for nearly a decade. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Marketing from Arizona State University, is an Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America, and believes that change begins on a local level. He’s an active donor and volunteer for organizations that are working to empower the next generation of leaders; such as New Pathways for Youth, Dress for Success, One-N-Ten, and the Arizona State University Alumni Association.
