Danny joined Resurgens in 2021 as a vice president and brings a wide range of investing and operating experience to the Firm.

Before joining Resurgens, Danny spent 3 years as a VP at Primus Capital (“Primus”). At Primus, Danny focused on the healthcare and education technology sectors where he closed five platform investments and one add-on. Prior to Primus, Danny was an associate on the Business Operations / Finance team at Tesla where he partnered with construction and manufacturing teams to ramp production capacity while removing cost from the manufacturing process. Prior to Tesla, he was a consultant at McKinsey where he focused on helping companies across industries improve the efficiency of their supply chain, service operations, and manufacturing processes.

Working at/with Resurgens is about the people. This group is a lot of things you might expect: smart, truth-seeking, challenging, with very high expectations for ourselves and those we work with… and more importantly, its a lot of things you might not expect: caring, honest, fair, high-integrity and with a sense of humor about it all. Working to get a little bit better every day, with a group of people that you love, that’s what it’s all about for me.
