As the founding director of DETEKT in 2003, Daniel is the driving force behind its business development. Early in DETEKT’s history, Daniel identified a strategic marker: The world comes to Asia for manufacturing, but professional design and engineering services based in Asia are limited. However, proximity between designers, engineers and manufacturers is necessary to speed up the development process.

As a result, DETEKT moved it’s offices to Hong Kong in 2006 and started it’s operation in Shenzhen, China in the same year. This was followed by operations in Taichung, Taiwan and Bangkok in 2010.

At DETEKT, Daniel is highly involved in the Product Consultation process. Due to his profound experience in design, engineering and manufacturing Daniel is in a position to provide you instant feedback about a new product idea.

Daniel holds degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Design from Monash University, Australia. In addition, he holds a Masters of Entrepreneurship and Innovation from the Australian Graduate School of Entrepreneurship, as well as an Asialink Fellowship in regional leadership from the University of Melbourne.
