Mr. Daniels will take up his appointment immediately upon the retirement of the current Chair, Rob Salamon, at the end of the current school year, 26 June 2020.
Mr. Daniels, a UK national and a graduate of the University of Edinburgh and the J.L. Kellogg Graduate School of Management, Northwestern University, has served on the Board of Governors with responsibility for Governance and Quality Assurance since 2018.
He has worked with SM Investments Corporation in the Philippines as a Consultant since 2012, focusing on Investor Relations and Sustainability. Prior to that he acquired a wealth of international banking, business and corporate communications experience across Asia, Europe and North America.

“On behalf of the Council of Trustees, the Board and the BSM family, I’d like to warmly welcome Mr. Daniels. I’d also like to pay special tribute to Mr. Salamon for his dedicated and tireless efforts over the last three and a half years. The school owes him a huge debt of thanks for all that he has done to strengthen the school’s future and for its contribution to the community here in the Philippines. He has been an exemplary servant of the school and will be sorely missed by his many friends,” said Mr. Totty.
Mr. Daniels added “I am greatly honored to have been appointed Chairman of the Board of BSM and I look forward to the various challenges that lie ahead with confidence and excitement. It will be a privilege to be working in close collaboration with fellow Board members, our Head of School, Martin van der Linde, his superb teaching staff and the first- class operational team. Through the current challenges we all face and beyond, I believe that, together, we can continue to achieve great things for BSM and take our wonderful school to even higher levels.”
