Daniel Ollgaard Joins The Org as Head of Business Development, The Org

Daniel Ollgaard has recently become the newest member of The Org team, taking on the role of Head of Business Development. He will be based in the New York office, and will report directly to CEO and Co-Founder Christian Wylonis.

His main responsibility as Head of Business Development is to develop The Org’s monetization strategy and paid products. Daniel says early on this will involve a lot of conversations and close collaboration with future users in order to develop products truly valuable to the users.

Daniel said that he was drawn to The Org because the concept immediately made sense to him. “It’s a really cool opportunity to join the company at an early stage and help build a business that I truly believe adds value,” he added.

Daniel brings a range of valuable experience to The Org. He started his career in financial services consulting in London, working at Expand Research, a benchmarking company within BCG. Here he helped executives within the tech and ops space of corporate & investment banks validate their investment strategies and levels of efficiency. Daniel transferred to New York City with Expand in late 2017. In 2019 he joined Button, a technology provider within the mobile affiliate marketing space. He initially worked in the Business Operations & Strategy team within the Revenue group, and then went on to lead the Financial Planning & Strategy team, reporting to Button’s CFO.

Daniel was born and bred in Copenhagen, and has mixed Danish and Cuban-American ancestry. He has lived in New York for around two and a half years, and prior to that lived in the UK for nine years, where he completed his studies, and began his working career.

As a true Dane, Daniel loves to get out and explore the city on his bicycle. He's also a craft beer enthusiast, and feels lucky to be able to spend his spare time exploring the impressive craft beer scene in New York.

Michael Melia has joined The Org as the first-ever Head of Marketing. He works out of the New York office and reports directly to VP of Growth Dylan Enright. In this newly created position, Michael will work to bring The Org’s brand to life — giving us both a soul and a voice — and lead the development of product messaging and positioning. His work will center around growing brand awareness across a number of different audiences with campaigns across earned, owned, and paid channels. “I'm convinced we're long overdue to change how we think about companies and the people that comprise them,” Michael said. As an anthropologist-turned-marketer, Michael’s background is in using technology to improve human relations. “I believe there is a powerful force behind the idea of using org charts as an organizing principle for thinking about work today,” Michael said. “I'm excited to be at the forefront of this field as Head of Marketing at The Org.” Before accepting this new challenge, Michael was the Marketing Director at Dashlane where he built and led the influencer marketing team, as well as the demand gen team. He also led brand media strategy, including launching a Super Bowl ad and running a subsequent national brand campaign. Before that, Michael was the Marketing Manager at Scottish luxury hotel brand Dakota Hotels, where he led paid search and social as well as brand development. Michael doesn’t have a typical marketing background. He is deeply interested in Social Anthropology and received his Ph.D. from the University of Oxford for his studies on the future of work. Additionally, he spent time at the Saïd Business School and the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology, where he gained expertise crossing between organizational studies and social theory. Michael also spent one year as a visiting researcher at the École des Mines Centre de Sociologie de l’Innovation (CSI) in Paris. Originally from Atlanta, Michael now lives in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. On nights and weekends, he can be found playing music around New York as a disco and boogie DJ.
