Daniel is one of the founding directors of the Exeter Pound.

"I got involved in the project as I had just moved back to Exeter after living in Cheltenham. I come very much from a small business background having run several businesses since the age of 18. One of which, Vision ICT, has been going for 17 years. I also have an active role within the FSB; being both branch and regional vice chair.

Outside of work, I enjoy going to comedy shows, reading and trying to find the time to travel. My last trip away was a month in Ecuador."
