DayBlink Consulting, a boutique consulting firm headquartered in Vienna, Virginia, announces the hire of Brendan Daly as its new Consultant. Brendan joins the DayBlink team with the goal of advancing the company’s operations and strategy consulting practice, and significantly contributing to its rapid growth and success. He will be a key player on an upcoming IT transformation strategy project with a luxury hotel company based in New York City.
“The DayBlink family is extremely excited to have Brendan join the team. Ultimately, our firm’s only meaningful assets are our people. The addition of Brendan is not only a win for DayBlink Consulting, it’s a win for our clients,” said Michael Wong, DayBlink’s Managing Director.
Brendan, who originally hails from Ireland, received his Bachelor’s degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University College Cork, Ireland. Brendan was subsequently one of three Irish students selected to receive a Naughton Fellowship to pursue the Engineering, Science, and Technological Entrepreneurship Master’s (ESTEEM) program at the University of Notre Dame and graduated in August 2012.
In addition to his stellar academic credentials, Brendan has a long history of leadership and innovation, including being selected as a finalist in the Irish national “Think outside the Box” and St. Louis “Arch Grant” entrepreneurial competitions. Brendan was elected VP of Cross Disciplinary Collaboration for the MBA Entrepreneurship Society and was also responsible for organizing Notre Dames first ever Startup Weekend.
Most recently, Brendan used his charismatic approach to drive multiple projects with enFocus, a socially responsible organization in the heart of South Bend. His SUV Analysis project staged an implementation strategy and pilot program devised to realize more than $1.4 million in potential savings within the South Bend Fire Department. This segment on Brendan’s enFocus project aired this fall on NBC during Notre Dame’s first home football game, which was seen by 4 million television viewers:
