Dan’s experience in building world class brands spans both the agency and client side, including three years as director of international marketing for Subway World Headquarters, the world’s largest QSR franchise with over 40,000 restaurants in 113 countries. On the agency side, he served as EVP at Leo Burnett, where he helped lead the McDonald’s International business, contributing to the growth of global relationships, geographic expansion and strategic support for 36 countries. Dan also spent time at Crispin Porter + Bogusky working on Mondelez International and Burger King; as well as at Havas, MFP, and Deutsch LA working on the iconic California Milk Advisory Board campaign.

“Quigley’s culture of ‘Brand Led, Demand Driven’ deeply resonates with me,” said Dan. “We are in the business of solving clients’ problems through ideas and executions and we must earn attention, respect and business from our clients and their customers. In today’s world of infinite content, this means being champions of creativity at every touchpoint, client interaction and piece of work that we put out into the world. Quigley’s decade-plus client engagements with global advertisers are a testament to the strength of their ability to solve challenging business problems and drive real world performance and business value. I’m excited to join the executive team and help lead the agency to its next chapter of success.”
