Daryl brings 28 years of successful entrepreneurial experience to the leadership team at PTG. He leads Heller Capital Group and in turn provides leadership to PTG as a portfolio company of Heller Capital Group. He specializes in M&A, deal-making, integrative negotiation, and strategy, and he’s most fulfilled in pursuit of win-win outcomes. Fittingly, Daryl is, in his own words, “evangelistic” about finding and maintaining balance in his professional and personal life, and that absolute accountability – to himself, to his family, to his work, to his teams, to his community, and to the world – is the foundation of Daryl’s leadership philosophy.
With an ever-growing list of professional accolades and accomplishments, Daryl never forgets his roots. A Pennsylvania native who co-founded his first company at a picnic table, Daryl continues to give back, remaining committed to community engagement and leadership, as well as conscientiously mentoring aspiring leaders in the area. Daryl is also an avid sports fan “of everything Philly” and a committed amateur triathlete, and his drive for holistic wellness is in perfect alignment with his demand for continuous improvement in himself, his companies, and the people around him.
As a man of many passions, Daryl holds two above the rest: his family and his tireless work for Horizon Initiative, an organization he co-founded with a core purpose of empowering the underprivileged to self-sustainability in Africa and Latin America. Daryl’s humanity and humanitarianism are both at the core of who he is and what he does, and he views his wholehearted investments in Horizon and his family as the true cultivation of his legacy. Like everyone at Premier Technology Group, Daryl is clearly committed to continuous improvement, innovation, and expansion as an engaged member of society and in his role at PTG, and he remains passionate about leaving the parts of the world he encounters better than he found them.
