Find me on

Dan leads local and national campaigns and provides insights on the world and workings of government, assisting our clients across the built environment sector to understand the landscape in which they are working. Dan’s work at Cratus takes him into the heart of Westminster, town halls around the country and to all the annual political conferences.

During his time at Worthing Borough Council the council became nationally recognised as a leader in digital transformation, health promotion, town centre and economic regeneration and environmental sustainability projects. The transformation of the council’s work resulted in two ‘Council of the Year’ shortlistings in 2020.

Serving as a board member of bodies such as Coast to Capital LEP and Chairing the Greater Brighton Economic Board for three years, he was instrumental in delivering programmes such as the installation of ultrafast broadband in towns across Sussex.

Prior to being elected Leader of Worthing Borough Council, Dan was an election agent and campaign director working with MPs and Councillors across Sussex.

He started his career working for both the Tourism Alliance and Tourism South East leading on policy advice and public affairs.

Dan has a Masters Degree in Public Policy and a BA Hons in Politics with Law.
