Chief Executive Officer
Dan's focus throughout his career has been on helping companies optimize the legal, financial and operational aspects of their businesses. Prior to founding UnitedLex, Dan served as Chief Financial Officer and General Counsel to Adjoined Consulting, and then as a Managing Director of Kanbay International. Adjoined provided management consulting, integration and outsourcing IT services to a primarily Fortune 500 client base (Adjoined was acquired by Kanbay International, India's 6th largest IT services provider, for $240 million in early '06). At Adjoined, Dan helped establish the company's unique brand of financial and legal execution while managing various offshore (India, Singapore and Malaysia) service provider relationships.
Prior to his career with Adjoined, Dan was Vice President of Corporate Development and Legal Affairs at SmartDisk Corporation where he guided such company through early stage structuring and execution of its initial public offering (during Dan's tenure SmartDisk grew to greater than $1 billion in market cap), and was responsible for all offshore (Japan, Taiwan and the Philippines) shared services and corporate development activity.
Dan began his career 20 years ago with Ernst & Young LLP providing audit and tax advice services to New York City area companies. He then went on to Greenberg Traurig LLP (an AmLaw top 10 firm with more than 1,800 lawyers) where as a member of the corporate and securities department he represented venture backed and Fortune 500 companies in the technology, financial, healthcare and manufacturing sectors.
