Danny Hulse, Treasurer

With over 25 years of small business management experience, Danny has built a broad skillset to draw from, including Leadership, Strategic Planning, Financial Management, Branding, and Multi-Channel Marketing. Raised and educated in London, England, he ventured to the United States in 2006 to set up operations for a European footwear and clothing brand, Dubarry of Ireland. What was intended as a temporary situation, soon turned into a longer-term plan when he met his future wife, Mary.
Mary and Danny settled in Oxford, PA in 2008, now also home to their two girls. As his business and staff grew and allowed him to take the odd moment away from work, Danny found SILO first as a volunteer, then a development committee member, and joined the board in 2020 and currently serves as Treasurer.
When he’s not at work or volunteering with SILO, Danny is either building something in his garage, having down-time with his family, discovering something new in the kitchen, or getting involved in a new project.
