Chief Human Resource Officer
Prior to joining SAFE, Daniel served as Director of Human Resources and Facilities for Better Business Bureau serving Central, Coastal, Southwest Texas and the Permian Basin, and as Grants Manager for BBB’s Education Foundation. Daniel was formerly Vice President, Human Resources and ‘keeper of the organizational culture’ for Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio Council. Daniel is a California transplant, having relocated to the Austin area in 2011. He is highly-skilled at delivering strategic nonprofit HR management — including compensation and benefits – and best-in-class employee relations and HR customer service.
As a domestic violence survivor himself, Daniel is passionate about stopping abuse for all people and creating safe communities. In fact, Daniel is really all about serving people. A successful day for him is being able to support any of the 300+ staff at SAFE (so they can, in turn, serve our clients), actively participating as a member of SAFE’s leadership team, and encouraging staff to GO BE GREAT!
Daniel Recommends Reading: To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee and The Color Purple by Alice Walker. Both teach an invaluable lesson of tolerance, acceptance, and the importance of not judging people on appearances.
