Dan brings a passion for people and building successful businesses to MacKay CEO Forums. Having spent 21 years as a Partner/Owner in the search and recruitment space and leadership roles prior to that Dan has experienced first-hand the power that great people can have on an organization when they are aligned with well thought out strategy.
