By facilitating these discussions, Daniel has supported local clients in staying well-informed and equipped to navigate local business challenges and opportunities.
Daniel is deeply committed to the development and well-being of others.

Through this role, Daniel has played a pivotal part in advancing EY’s DE&I agenda, exemplified by the establishment of their CI DE&I working party and the implementation of various initiatives. By fostering a sense of belonging and championing diversity, Daniel enables all team members to reach their full potential. His dedication extends beyond the workplace, as he actively contributes to the local community. In collaboration with the Jersey Employment Trust, he volunteers his time to conduct mock interview training sessions, empowering individuals and providing them with invaluable skills for professional success.
On his new role, Daniel said: “I am proud to be taking this next step in my career and joining the CI leadership team. In my new role, I look forward to continuing to efficiently serve our growing client base and bringing the applicable EY solutions to them as well as pursuing our DE&I agenda by nurturing talent and creating an environment where everyone can be their true authentic selves, in order for everyone to reach their full potential, perform at their best and as a result provide exception service to our clients and continue to grow our business.”
