Leadership Model

Developed with neuroscientist Dr. Robert Cooper, the inception of the Y Scouts Leadership Model is still the proven model used today.

Hiring on Purpose

We don’t do placements. We align leaders and work. Placement is a cold top-down approach, focusing on resumes and filling empty seats. By hiring on purpose, we take the broken vertical model and flip it on its side, creating horizontal alignment between leader and company. We bridge the gap between business’ purpose and a leader’s passions and strengths. It is purposeful and methodical and driven by empathy. It’s why we exist.

Daniel has built a reputation for being tenacious, solution-oriented and creative, with a track record of improving company culture and performance through developing a deep understanding of our client’s biggest opportunities and finding the talent to drive growth.

Born in Texas, raised in Seattle, he raced to the Arizona sunshine as soon as he could. Daniel Joined Y Scouts in 2017 and leads both our SaaS practice and our Health & Wellness practice (including Cannabis) mainly focusing on CEO, COO, CMO, CPO, CTO, and Growth roles.

Prior to joining Y Scouts, Daniel worked in a number of different environments, including boutique Technical Consulting Firms, Fortune 500, and as well as VC-backed start-ups. He graduated from Arizona State University with a Master of Science in Design, focused on qualitative research methods and design thinking.

A few fun facts:

  • Proud owner of the best dog in the world named Layla (yes, she is named after the Eric Clapton song)
  • When I’m not plugged into my laptop, I love exploring all that Arizona outdoors has to offer
  • Philosophy nerd
  • Breakfast burrito aficionado
  • Shameless fan of Seattle sports and Formula 1 racing
