Ben is the founder of Business e via Italy (BEV), which guides clients from around the world through the complex process of entering the Italian business arena—via start-ups, targeting businesses for sale, and aligning with foreign investors and international trading partners. Since the full-service firm was founded in 2010, its bilingual website, businesseviaitaly.com, has attracted 60 million unique visitors, with access to 65,000+ registered Italian companies and nearly 200 investment opportunities.

Ben has also co-founded operations management consultancy Wilbe in Milan, Italy, which he continues to operate alongside BEV. Previous executive marketing posts include Corporate Communications Manager for global Managed Service company ControlCircle —whose clients include KPMG, Rightmove, Sega, Nokia, HSBC and Akamai —earning him a “Most Valuable Player” citation in 2008; as well as Marketing Manager roles for Passion Communication agency, public relations group Bell Pottinger; and Advertising agency BBDO Ehrenstråhle.


Daniel has lived in 5 countries on 3 continents before settling with his Italian wife Silvia and young family here in Milan.

Daniel is currently working with The Spectrum IFA Group to provide personal financial planning advice for clients in Italy. His career began in the Accounting and tax field in 1998 and after 10 years in business consulting and tax advisory roles, he has since held senior commercial and financial management positions within multinational companies across Europe, the US and Australia, in the various sectors of Information Technology, Real estate and consumer product marketing and distribution.

Daniel has owned and operated his own mortgage advice and financial planning business in Australia since 2004, assisting clients with financial advice including investment strategy, wealth protection and retirement planning assistance.
