After starting his career as an analyst in the City for JP Morgan, Dan decided to put his analytical and quantitative ability to better use in London's nascent startup scene. After playing a pivotal role in growing two of Europe's most successful startups – Songkick and Qype (acquired by Yelp) – he had the epiphany that employees, not customers or product, were the key to business success, and thus Peakon was born.

Dan has an MBA from London Business School, a degree in software engineering, and enjoys cycling in his spare time.
