Under his leadership, CGI has evolved to become one of the leading commercial glazing businesses in the western United States. Daniel has created ongoing working relationships with many household names, including Starbucks, Taco Bell, and Planet Fitness.

Daniel worked through his journeyman phase of glazing at the L.A. Unified School District, supporting the district’s massive system of glass installation at its network of schools.
Although Daniel is the president and CEO of CGI, his vision is shared by his entire team and is reflected in their work ethic and attention to detail, including safety issues.
“Our repeat customers come back to us because they know that all they have to do is walk us through the project, turn us loose, and let us get to work. Plus, we maintain a high level of communication. Many of our customers have told us that this has made a big difference in the success of the glass installation part of their project, and even in the success of the overall job.”
Daniel’s commitment to excellence includes the achievement of the highest levels of licenses and certifications for the glazing industry. In addition, Daniel maintains a rigorous program of continuing education in all aspects of commercial contracting, including technical, scientific, regulatory, safety, economic, and professional resource management.
