Dan joined the Army after university and served for fifteen years prior to co-founding FSI Worldwide. A graduate of the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst, he was commissioned into the Brigade of Gurkhas in 1992. He served on a wide range of operational tours and filled a wide variety of command and staff appointments. Dan commanded a company of Gurkhas attached to the Parachute Regiment on three operations – Sierra Leone, Macedonia and Afghanistan. He was also trained as a Commando and selected to train Royal Marines Officers in leadership and tactics. He was highly regarded as a strategic planner and filled a number of appointments with a ‘Plans’ focus. During his service (and after) he spent a considerable amount of time in Nepal and India and is a fluent Nepali speaker.
After leaving the Army, Dan spent six months working for a private security company in Baghdad before leaving to co-found FSI Worldwide Ltd (in Sept 2006). Since that time has been intimately involved in the design and management of a number of high threat security solutions to UK Government contracts and US Department of State contracts. More recently he led with the establishment of a UK subsidiary of the business (FSI Europe Ltd) which delivers managed security solutions to a range of CNI clients in the UK. Collectively, FSI has become a market leader in intelligent security solutions and innovative resource solutions.
Dan lives in London with his family but spends much of his time in Kent where the business is headquartered. He is actively involved in a number of organisations for ex-servicemen and has been a committee member for a variety of charitable events supporting Help For Heroes and the Gurkha Welfare Trust.
