Daniel is at the helm of Danrae’s day to day operations, and it’s a position he’s made for. With a diverse background and skills shaped from the ground-up, he’s adept at everything from hands-on waterproofing to superior business strategy… and he makes a mean espresso.
The path to waterproofing
Daniel started his career building computers in the IT industry.
“I worked in IT for over ten years and was in systems administration for companies including Sapient and Time Inc. I was with Brennan IT when I saw that Dad was having trouble keeping on top of the volume of work, and I decided to come on board. That meant swapping suits for shovels and learning the business from the ground up – literally. On my first day I came home covered in dirt… from head to toe.”
A passion for knowledge
Daniel loved superheroes when he was a kid, and he has a few secret identities of his own. He earned his waterproofing licence after a few years with Danrae – then completed business programs, and then a full MBA at Charles Sturt University. He even found time to do a barista’s course between studying and running the company.
“I have a hunger for knowledge. And I love seeing people develop to their full potential.” And that’s one reason why Danrae staff have access to training to further their careers – and build Danrae’s skill sets.
Creative customer solutions
Daniel believes in customer solutions. “We wouldn’t be here without our customers – and my whole career has been about service. From IT, I learnt a lot about urgency, and how to get the most out of minimal resources. Now it’s always fulfilling to see a job done, and a client over the moon – especially when we’ve solved a long-standing issue.”
Ultimately, Daniel is an inspirational CEO who loves a challenge. “I’m interested in building client relationships and taking our business to the next level. When I see a large-scale job that I know we can provide a solution for, that’s exciting.”
