Previously, he was Head of Applied Technology Innovation at Lloyds Banking Group, and worked for more than 6 years at bet365 in a variety of senior technology roles, ending up as head of research and development for bet365 globally. In each of these positions Dan was responsible for leading high-performance teams to successfully build and launch disruptive products at massive scale.
Dan will report directly to CEO Gareth Mobley and will sit on the organisation’s executive board where he will lead the MCG / DBLX tech strategy with a particular focus on innovation. He will be working to improve and develop our industry leading learning, engagement and collaboration platforms and solutions, which help organisations unleash the potential of remote and site-based workforces whilst ensuring that they scale to cope with rapidly increasing demand.

“I’m absolutely delighted to be joining MCG and DBLX, a company that really wants to do things differently and disrupt the HR-tech industry. I have a passion for building products that help people and teams grow, so am looking forward to bringing some large-tech capabilities to a smaller company that is a pioneer in this space. I have craved a move like this for some time and can’t wait to get started” Dan says.
‘The next steps of the journey for MCG and DBLX will shape it for many years to come. I am enjoying getting to know the passionate DBLX team and understanding how our products grow the capabilities of our customers and their employees. The world is changing and technology is shaping the future of work. Employee engagement will play a pivotal role in improving the productivity and enjoyment of work, especially now that millions are used to working from home”.
