He has led the continued 100% year-on-year company growth, which repeated unabated through the global pandemic, helping global enterprise clients accelerate their digital transformational objectives to retain their dominant market positions through IT modernisation strategies.


Dan has a strong focus on developing collaborative partnerships (with clients and SIs) where joint propositions deliver improved value to end-clients and local communities and supports involvement in shaping strategy on a  much larger scale, where the Centre for the New Midlands partnership facilitates.

His focus has always been on employee training & development, producing high performing consultants in technologies, business processes and emotional intelligence.  As a result, Kagool provides a differentiating  consultancy service to end clients which is currently unrivalled in the enterprise IT sector and is evidenced in the growth story.

Dan has a constant eye on emerging technology trends and invests heavily ensuring Kagool is well positioned as a tech leader when mainstream adoption picks up for example Industry 4.0, Metaverse etc.

Whilst Kagool is focussed on expanding globally, Dan ensures Kagool retains the integration into local connected communities, which is supported through a range of charitable engagements that Kagool is passionate about supporting.
