Dan Prickett is serving his second term as a Council member for the Town of Kiawah. In January 2021, he was appointed Mayor Pro Tem by newly elected Mayor John Labriola. In addition, he serves as Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee and the State Accommodations Tax Committee. He is also the town’s liaison to the Kiawah Island Community Association, Kiawah Partners, Kiawah Island Golf Resort, Freshfields Village, as well as the Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments. Given the increasing importance of our off-island roads, he is the Council’s lead on Off-Island Transportation Initiatives and the town’s proxy to the Charleston Area Transportation Study.
During Mr. Prickett’s first term, he supported the town as liaison to the Planning Commission, the Board of Zoning Appeals, and the Arts Council. He also undertook a special assignment for Mayor Craig Weaver to identify the key risks the town might face in the foreseeable future and help identify its level of preparedness.
By way of background, Dan and his wife, Nancy, have been full-time residents for fourteen years and have owned property on Kiawah for over twenty-five years. He served on the planning commission for six years prior to his first election and served on the committees that designed and built our Municipal Center on Betsy Kerrison. The Pricketts are members of the Governor’s Club and the Kiawah Island Club. Dan also is co-chair of the Kiawah Art Guild.
After completing undergraduate and graduate degrees, Dan served as a commissioned officer in the US Army and was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal in 1970. His career in banking and investment management took Dan and his family to Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, New York, and Charlotte. He was an Executive Vice President of The Boston Company, headed the U.S. Private Bank for Chase Manhattan, and retired as Executive Vice President, Wealth Management for Wachovia Corporation, now Wells Fargo.
