Daniel is currently Program Manager for the Enterprise and Community Development Practice Area at PYXERA Global. He’s assisting with the development of local content programs, including the Supplier Development Program in Mozambique. The SDP seeks to build the skills and linkages that local suppliers (SMEs) need to capture and perform on contracts with the extractive industry.
Daniel has been involved in headquarters and field program management activities for non-profit organizations over the past decade, in both Latin America and Africa. His diverse programmatic experience includes working with vulnerable populations, health, water and hygiene, agriculture and economic development projects.
He has led development programs funded by USAID, ECHO, and other bilateral and private donors in El Salvador, Honduras, Liberia and Mozambique. Prior to joining PYXERA Global at its headquarters, Daniel managed a $15-million Food Security initiative in 50 rural communities in northern Mozambique, which resulted in lower malnutrition rates and increased income generation for subsistence farmers and their families.
Since its founding in early 2012, Daniel has served on the board of the Open Knowledge Collaborative, a local organization partnering with other non-profit organizations, local governments, foundations, and research institutions to assist all in improving their information management. In 2013 he received the Emerging Leader Award from the Johnson Institute for Responsible Leadership.
Daniel grew up in Argentina, and is fluent in Spanish and Portuguese. He holds a BS in Chemistry, and a Masters in International Development focused on NGO Management.
