Northrop & Johnson's Chief Operating Officer Daniel Ziriakus entered the marketing world in 2001 with his appointment to Estee Lauder’s marketing team in Munich.
He then went on to work for Bridger Conway, a Miami-based global branding agency specializing in creative communications for premium and luxury brands. Daniel’s clients included well-known luxury hotels and real estate developers, such as the St. Regis and The Ritz Carlton. It was during this period that he was introduced to the yachting industry.
Daniel joined Fraser Yachts as head of the U.S. marketing department; there he played an integral role in the redesign and development of the Fraser Yachts brand as it stands today.
In 2010, Daniel made the move to Northrop & Johnson as Director of Marketing where he reorganized the brand, taking it through a global repositioning, which evolved the brokerage house as a true player on the international level.
Daniel then moved to Monaco to head up the Camper & Nicholsons (C&NI) marketing department. He thrived while managing C&NI’s global marketing strategy, media planning and buying, creative direction, marketing partnerships, social media, online development, events and boat shows, as well as a diverse roster of external agencies and in-house teams in Antibes, Monaco, London and Fort Lauderdale.
Daniel is excited to once again be part of the Northrop & Johnson team as Chief Operating Officer, based in Fort Lauderdale.
He currently holds a Bachelor of Science in marketing and advertising and an Executive MBA from the University of Miami.
