Chief Technology Officer & Co-Founder at Terakeet
Patrick Danial is the Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Terakeet. As a teenager he built, owned and operated one of the first web hosting and colocation companies in New York State and brokered high-volume, high-dollar advertising and traffic deals before structured display campaigns and Internet marketing companies became mainstream. He has since developed a wide array of software and technology-based platforms for a roster of multinational clients. Since co-founding Terakeet in 2001, Patrick has guided the company’s product vision and innovation, co-leading the company’s growth from dorm-room startup into a global Enterprise Search Engine Optimization and Influencer Marketing technology firm. His leadership and innovation–as well as his eagerness to get his hands dirty with product prototyping himself–have shaped Terakeet’s unique approach to enterprise SEO and guided the creation of a supporting suite of proprietary, best-in-class software applications. These include Chorus, an enterprise SEO platform with unmatched publisher discovery and outreach workflow capabilities; Carina, a competitive backlink analysis and keyword research tool; and Perlu, the world’s first influencer community and collaboration platform that launched in the Summer of 2018. Patrick and his wife, Jessica, spend time outside their careers pursuing their shared passion for arts and education philanthropy. Most recently, they’ve been focused on the development of the Danial Family Education Center at Syracuse’s Everson Museum of Art, which opened in the Summer of 2018. He lives in Skaneateles, NY with Jessica and their sons Remy and Ellis.
