Daniel Walpole
Daniel Walpole
CDO

Daniel Walpole wakes up in the morning and goes to bed at night envisioning disruptive new ways to transform raw data into actionable intelligence businesses  can use to make lives more convenient, secure and connected for businesses and consumers alike. When he’s not awake, he’s dreaming about it.

If anyone is up for the task of harnessing big data, it’s Walpole. With an instinct for identifying and capturing opportunities, he also knows when to listen and learn from experts who know more than he does. When he was a Managing Partner for Verizon’s Internet of Things (IoT) Resale Business Group, Walpole devoted hundreds of hours talking to and learning from the industry’s leaders and innovators. In the process, he built partnerships that helped him create a $200 million business pipeline for the telecom giant in just a few short years.

During his tenure at Verizon, Walpole had the chance to meet automotive telematics pioneers Brian Boling and Bill Cheney, the visionary leadership behind Procon Analytics. Boling and Cheney soon became Walpole’s mentors as well as collaborators. When the opportunity arose to bring Walpole on board as Procon’s Chief Data Officer, the leadership team at Procon didn’t hesitate to make it happen.

As Procon’s CDO, Walpole leverages his deep industry knowledge, experiences and connections to pursue diversified new vertical markets and forge partnerships within and beyond the automotive sector. His focus is on helping more businesses transform massive data lakes into filtered, controlled and actionable streams of intelligence that not only deliver value to customers, but also drives sustainable and profitable growth for Procon. Walpole’s strategy is to expand digital transformation direct to consumers too. As people across the globe spend more and more time on their mobile devices, Walpole is looking to perfect the technology that helps connect consumers to the things that matter most in their lives and then put that power and control back in their hands so they can use it when and how they choose.

A native of Great Britain, Walpole honed his entrepreneurial skills in the aggressive world of British “commission only” advertising sales. He migrated to the U.S. and joined the sales team at AT&T Wireless, Sprint PCS, and Verizon. During his tenure at Verizon, Walpole developed and lead some of the highest performing sales teams in the Company. His direct and honest style has generated a legion of former employees who are fiercly loyal to him. The father of 3 children, Walpole brings the same focus and dedication as a club soccer coach. His vision was to build a soccer program that placed more importance on developing the boys, as young men, than it did on wins and losses. A program that showed them how to learn from both the successes and failures of competitive soccer as a way of preparing them for adulthood – this year, (as the only non-paid coach out of 140 teams in the competiion) that vision lead to his team  becoming the California State Champions, their sixth major trophy in five years.
