Dan Shavick

Founder / HR Director

Our good natured co-founder created Softwire to do great things for our customers, our people and the wider world.

Dan spends his days seeking out the most talented people he can find, hiring them and keeping them happy.

A mathematician from a young age, he captained his school team to victory in the London Maths Championships, studied maths at Cambridge and has published a book on poker.

When asked to describe himself in one word he used three – “that’s not possible”.

He was the brains behind Softwire’s Charity Saturday, whereby a few times a year people come to work on a weekend and we donate their client fees to charity. We raise a five-figure sum each year doing this.

Always in search of wisdom, Dan’s early attempts at playing rugby led to him having a piece of somebody else’s tooth lodged permanently in his forehead.
