Daniel is a Partner at Wellington since 2008. He is building out the London presence, where he primarily focusses on new and existing deals in the Digital Media sector like Questico, Qype and Spotify. Before joining the Wellington team, he has been fortunate to be at the forefront of developments in the European and Global internet arena from an early stage of the markets development at 3i and Yahoo!. These experiences provide him with a unique depth of insight into what does and does not work across most different areas of the internet across the world. He is now able to apply this to great effect in finding new deals and in supporting portfolio companies like GameDuell, Livebookings and Zopa to navigate the rapidly changing market landscape and build the great businesses of the future.

From 1999 to 2005, he was at Yahoo! in London where he had senior corporate development roles covering strategy and M&A for their European operations, applying and gaining expertise across a multitude of internet products and business models.
