Who is Daniel Cardelus

I love to solve problems creatively. I also enjoy helping others to cover their needs using technology. That’s why along my professional career I’ve been interested in ideation, generation and sale of quality software and digital products. With this secret desire in mind, I’ve put in practice the process shown in the home page. For years, I’ve been playing different roles, learning all the necessary resources to cover every of its phases along the way. To meet this goal, I focused my efforts on technology, business and design. And I’m proud of the obtained results. Managing, treating and analyzing lots of data, I’ve been able to create products and services aligned with customer needs in every industry I’ve worked in, especially Utilities.

WHAT I DO


I’m a very results-oriented person who leads innovative initiatives. To achieve my goals, I don’t doubt to roll up my sleeves and do every effort to guarantee success. Therefore, I believe the best way to introduce myself professionally is by my actions, by everything I do and not by what I say I can do. This is why you can find above the most relevant initiatives in which I’ve been involved in the last three years, either as a leader, consultant or collaborator. Among all, these are the ones I’m proudest of.
