As the President and CEO, and Chairman of the Board at Canada Goose, Dani has transformed the small outerwear manufacturer founded by his grandfather in 1957, into a highly coveted performance luxury brand that is known and loved around the world. Dani’s passion for bringing Canada to the world has fueled the brand’s journey from the Canadian north to the streets of Toronto, New York, Tokyo, London, Paris, and Beijing to name a few. Over the past four years, Dani has led the company’s evolution into direct-to-consumer retail, and in 2017 took the company public, which was hailed as one of the most successful IPOs in recent history. Today, Canada Goose products are available in 38 countries and the company employs more than 3,400 people worldwide.
An unwavering advocate for Made-in-Canada manufacturing, Dani has often been recognized for his passion, authenticity and global vision. In 2016, Dani was awarded the Order of Canada for his entrepreneurial success and charitable work in Canadian Arctic communities. Additionally, he was named Marketer of the Year by the Canadian Marketing Association in 2013, Canada’s Entrepreneur of the Year in 2011 by Ernst & Young, and received Canada’s Top 40 Under 40 Award in 2008.
Passionate about community, making a global impact and Canada’s North, Dani also currently serves on the Board of Directors for Polar Bears International and Mount Sinai Hospital Foundation.
Dani and his company Canada Goose, have been very generous supporters of Students on Ice over many years, including providing Canada Goose jackets, vests and hats for SOI participants on each expedition.
