Area of Expertise
Accounting & Finance
Dan was born in South Africa, grew up in Northern California, and then moved to the beautiful central coast for college. He started his career in San Francisco with KPMG doing IT Audit before deciding to leave Carl the Fog and migrate south to San Diego. After a stint with Deloitte, where he was no stranger to the 80% travel, living out of a suitcase in airplanes and hotels, and some extremely long work days, he realized his true passion was in building relationships with his peers and clients. At Vaco, Dan gets to meet with the best and brightest Accounting and Finance professionals throughout San Diego and build authentic, long-term relationships.
In Dan’s free time, you can find him working out, drinking unhealthy amounts of caffeine (he’s working on this…), checking out all the best grub spots around San Diego, and watching way too many sports (not possible).
What do you love best about working at Vaco?
We are often working with people who are not happy with their current situation. I think most of us can relate to this in some shape or form. I love that I look forward to hanging out with some pretty rad friends (coworkers) during the day while supporting the San Diego community in finding their ideal group of amazing friends (coworkers).
