From City & State “2018 New York City 40 Under 40” Power List:
Senior Executive, Geto & de Milly
Civics is in Daniel White’s blood. His parents first met when his mother, then a local news reporter, was covering a public demonstration spearheaded by his father, a community organizer. Since his childhood in Nashville, Tennessee, White knew that he would follow in his parents’ footsteps in some way.
Today, White is a senior executive at the public policy and communications firm Geto & de Milly, where his work ranges from providing policy and community relations counsel to real estate developers, to representing the John McEnroe Tennis Academy on Randall’s Island, which caters to youth from East Harlem and the South Bronx. As a self-proclaimed “massive soccer fan,” White is especially excited about representing the city’s first Major League Soccer team, the New York City Football Club. He also advocates for nonprofits addressing issues like health care, arts education and criminal justice.
In addition to the work he has done for New York companies and agencies, White is proud of the people he gets to work with – everyone from community board leaders to heads of academic institutions. “Our work, what’s really great about it, is it puts us in front of so many fascinating people who are really deeply committed to ensuring a great future for the city,” he says. “It means a lot to me to have close, trusted working relationships with civic leaders and to be in a position to move New York City forward, keep it competitive, and make it more equitable.”
