A Results-Oriented Approach

Daniel has been responsible for many mission-critical projects and initiatives, and his impact is felt to this day. As the head of global communications at Gloat, Daniel drove each aspect of major announcements, product launches, and thought leadership, developing sophisticated project plans and working cross-functionally with almost every segment of the company. He led PR activations for the platform’s massive expansion into the job candidate persona; distinct positioning on ethical AI and quiet quitting; and Gloat’s Series D funding round (collaborating with Al Gore and his investment firm, which led the round). As the head of public relations at Phenom, Daniel executed communications campaigns for four acquisitions and drove majority share-of-voice in the talent experience category for 15 months straight. He also worked closely with enterprise customers like Southwest Airlines and MGM to draft case studies and facilitate media coverage about their success with Phenom’s software. 

Crucial Agency Experience

In the last few years, Daniel has directly managed agency teams of up to 10 people and budgets of up to $500,000. He has also worked at an agency himself. At Tierney, Daniel owned the communications content strategy for Choice Hotels, a multinational hospitality company. He also consulted in crisis communications for other clients, including one of the largest summer camps on the East Coast. Daniel helped this client avoid bankruptcy during the pandemic by boosting essential customer engagement to over 90%, eliminating negative media impressions in under 2 weeks, and crafting a narrative used to fundraise over $2 million.
