Geneen Award, ITT Corporation's highest employee honor.

From 2002 to 2005, Mr. Daniel was the Director of Internal Audit for ITT Corporation worldwide and led the company's successful 2004 inaugural Sarbanes-Oxley compliance efforts.

Mr. Daniel began his work in industry with Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), moving on to Stanford Telecommunications and ultimately becoming its Systems Integration Group's Vice President of Administration and Finance. Stanford Telecommunications' government business was acquired by ITT in December 1999.

Mr. Daniel holds a Master's degree in Business Administration from George Mason University. He earned his Bachelor's degree in Business Management from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (VPI&SU, aka Virginia Tech).
