Meet the Team
Founder & President
Originally from the United Kingdom, Danny brings over 14 years’ experience of growing technology businesses within the infrastructure industry.
Danny was the founder and managing director for JD7 Ltd based in the UK and responsible for the creation and implementation of industry’s first pipeline condition assessment technology and solutions for water, gas and industrial sectors. After Aquam Corporation acquired JD7 in 2014, Danny moved to Managing Director for their Aquam Pipe Diagnostics Division where he oversaw the expansion of Aquam Pipe Diagnostics from the UK into North America.
Danny completed his mechanical engineering apprenticeship at Rolls Royce UK and spent 10 years working as a mechanical engineer within the Nuclear Marine technical development division and a further 12 months within the advanced propulsion design of Rolls Royce Aerospace.
Director of Sales
An internationally recognized expert in the Water Industry with over 25 years of experience, Simon is responsible for evangelizing Orbis’ next-generation infrastructure monitoring technologies.
Simon transitioned from Aquam Pipe Diagnostics (“APD”), also an Aquam company, where he served as General Manager. There he led the organization, with a focus on operational rigor and customer service. Simon gained key insights in non-disruptive asset management and continued to develop relationships within the water and wastewater sector, which will serve him well in his new role.
Before joining Aquam, Simon led the team at Matchpoint Water Asset Management for non-revenue water reduction, infrastructure failure risk mitigation, as well as western US expansion. Previously, Simon also held sales, project management, and field engineering positions at Halma Water Management (formerly Palmer Environmental) in the UK. He started his career at Cambridge Water Plc where he rose through the ranks to the position of Chief Inspector. While at Cambridge Water Plc, Simon focused on leading his team and executing District Metered Area tests and innovative leak detection practices. He left behind the lowest ever recorded level of water loss the company had witnessed.
