Started in 1996 by Dan Faber, International Xchange Organization (IXO) has served as a platform that takes risks necessary to facilitate the growth of faith-based entrepreneurial leaders living in difficult places. The goal has been to merge education with practical support in the context of a caring community to help each entrepreneur dream, birth, and grow a healthy organization. Over the past 20+ years, IXO has watched these dreams spread across 3 continents, grow into over 50 initiatives, and then expand into careers for our entrepreneurial friends who have become the IXO family.
Dan founded IXO and currently focuses on Vision, Strategy, Management, and Member Care.
As a part of his responsibility, Dan manages the managers of IXO subsidiary organizations which function under the oversight of the IXO Board.
Dan resides near Murphy, North Carolina but travels extensively recruiting trainers and visiting staff in the US and overseas. All of IXO staff work virtually from around the country and in Asia and Europe.
Dan has worked in Maryland, Mississippi, Alabama, Costa Rica, and Mexico. During his time in Baltimore, Dan founded partnerships in Mexico, Ukraine, Romania, Jamaica, and China. It was at this time that IXO was created to send entrepreneurs to sensitive locations to start new outreach ventures and train national leaders.
After moving back to Montgomery, IXO received its non-profit status and began assisting new international start-ups. Following the Beijing Olympics in 2008, IXO grew rapidly requiring Dan to direct the organization full-time as President. Dan and his wife Dale live in the mountains of North Carolina in order to lead our Rest And Renewal Ministry for missionaries and Christian leaders.
