Bio

Dan is a Business Director within GRG Executive Search. His main focus is to lead on executive interim appointments and maintain active contact with the best interim support that the market has to offer. A large part of Dan’s role over the last 5 years has involved business-wide transformation initiatives which make him the perfect team member to lead Transformation within the executive brand.

Upon graduating from university, Dan worked for one of the largest sales businesses in the world before ultimately settling on recruitment as a long-term career path. His decade-long journey into recruitment started with Michael Page Finance and Dan was quickly promoted to Regional Manager as one of the fastest progressing talents amongst his business peer group. Following on from this success, Dan was appointed as Director of a US owned UK startup recruitment business to grow and develop their multi-discipline professional service offering.

The last 5 years with GRG Executive Search have seen Dan crystallize his reputation as an executive recruiter covering C-suite appointments within a broad range of listed, privately-owned and private equity-backed businesses.

Dan’s role is diverse due to the nature of the interim requirement; you can find him engaged in Finance, Business Transformation and Board Appointments. Often it is the hard-to-find candidate at short notice which defines his working brief.

From a personal perspective, Dan is an avid Peloton user, an average DIY enthusiast and a terrible golfer.
