As Director of Sport, Dan oversees Proball Groups’ global operation.

Dan studied Sports Science and Leisure Management at Brunel University London. He is also a fully qualified UEFA coach and is fluent in both Spanish and English.

Dan started his playing career as a schoolboy with Charlton Athletic Football Club after coming to England at a young age.

He subsequently returned to Colombia and was part of the Deportivo Cali team that were runners up in the South American Champions League (Copa Libertadores), narrowly losing on penalties to Palmeiras of Brazil in the final.

The ensuing interest from British and European teams resulted in Dan’s return and he went on to have spells with several top clubs before a road traffic accident prematurely ended a promising career.

Dans passion for the game led him to continue working in football as a consultant to some of the most prestigious sports agencies in the UK, advising on the transfers of South American players, to the UK, Europe and the Middle East.

After several years of building a solid reputation and a wealth of contacts worldwide, Dan set up the Proball Group.

Dans knowledge of football and the football business is respected on a global level. Through the Proball Group he advises professional players and clubs, national federations and multinational corporations. He also headed a team responsible for the brokering of an international commercial sponsorship contract for world superstar Lionel Messi.
