Daniel is our Managing Director and started Steamhaus in August 2015.
Back in 2000 Daniel set up Melbourne Server Hosting and grew it to become one of the North West’s most respected and successful independent hosting companies. Melbourne’s specific focus was on customer service, resulting in the business consistently growing at a rate of 40% per year.
Daniel ran Melbourne for a total of 12 years, through to its sale in 2012; at this point having a turnover of £3.5m and a team of around 40 staff.
In 2012, after exiting Melbourne, Daniel decided to spend some time focusing on starting a family. His twins were born in 2014. They’ve kept him and his partner incredibly busy since. Really, really busy.
Daniel realised early on in 2015 that the cloud and DevOps are where the future lies in regards to hosting. Before he knew it, Steamhaus was incorporated and he was leading a team of experts.
When Daniel isn’t working or being a Dad, you’ll find him either at the gym or at his piano playing at the skill level of a five-year-old.
