“I feel honored to be joining 757 Angels as the Associate Director. It feels amazing to be back in the 757 working with such an impactful organization spotlighting the talent and opportunity that Hampton Roads has to offer.” Daniel Byler Clark, Associate Director @ 757 Angels
The 757 Angels team has been strengthened by the addition of a new Associate Director, Daniel Byler Clark. Clark will provide on-going support to the Executive Director, Monique Adams, and play a critical role of improving processes, enhancing communications and advancing key initiatives including diversity. “757 Angels has gotten to the point where it was clear that running the group would require another person and thanks to a grant from Go Virginia we hired Daniel whose background is well-suited to assist with the evolution of the group.”
Clark is a Hampton Roads native who attended First Colonial High School and has a B.S. in Business Marketing from the Old Dominion University’s Strome College of Business and a M.S. in Applied Finance from Pepperdine University. After graduating from ODU, Clark moved to Los Angeles where he accepted a position at Uber Technology, Inc. While at Uber, he implemented innovative solutions to streamline operations and managed large-scale projects nationwide. Uber’s Senior Operations Manager of Events in US & Canada described Daniel as “dedicated, charismatic and hard-working” and expects that he will provide “a great deal of value to the team”. Clark was most recently employed in Investment Strategy at Tidewater Investment Company.
