BA – Security, Terrorism and Counterterrorism

After graduating from the Royal Military College and serving in the Australian Defence Force for ten years, Daniel joined the private sector as a management professional. He spent the better part of the next decade refining his specialist expertise across risk assessments, developing management plans and executing high profile infrastructure management. He has worked in some of the most remote, complex and harsh environments across Australia, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

In 2014, Daniel joined Executive Risk Solutions as an Operations Manager, quickly becoming General Manager for the Australasian region in August 2015, Chief Operations Officer in September 2018, and the Director of Strategy, Technology and Markets in August 2020. His knowledge of remote area logistics is vast, and he has presided over contracts throughout Australia, from Groote Eylandt in the country’s north to Alice Springs in the centre.

A member of the Executive Team, his current role sees him manage and mentor team members across the company’s global Security, Emergency Response, and Crisis and Emergency Management divisions.

Daniel pairs strong leadership qualities with a natural ability to mentor and guide. Since 2014, he has been pivotal in leading the diversification of the business, developing the staffing services division from 80 to over 300 and playing an integral role in client partnerships with Woodside Energy, Roy Hill Iron Ore, and most recently the Perth Cultural Centre.

In 2017, he led the business’ ADF support efforts which resulted in winning the Defence Reserves Employer of the Year Award. In 2019, he attended the Australian Command and Staff Course where he was awarded the Student of Merit and the Sir Thomas Blamey Memorial Award for his outstanding contribution.
