“I am more than a Vice-President of Innovation and Development, I turn dreams into reality.”
Daniel has been working at the YMCA for almost 13 years, but his involvement began long before: as a member, a teen volunteer and a certified group course trainer. A graduate in occupational biology and kinesiology (B.Sc., M.Sc.), Daniel was a renowned singer-songwriter in a previous life and also had an international career in business development within the entertainment industry.
As part of his current role, Daniel is working on various development initiatives to increase the organization's presence within Montreal as well as all other regions of the province. He is dedicated to ensuring that our activities and services are offered to the largest number of people and that the YMCA evolves according to the latest trends in social innovation. His most recent accomplishments include the creation of numerous organizational strategic plans, the revitalization of Camp YMCA Kanawana, the establishment of the Cartierville YMCA Centre (opened in 2010) and the partnership with the City of Quebec for a new YMCA project in Saint-Roch (opening in the spring of 2020).
