What clients and associates have to say ...


Glenn Miller, Vice President, Canadian Urban Institute

“Daniel was a key member of the team that conceptualized Value Planning as an area of practice, leveraging work Daniel completed earlier for the Province of Ontario and the City of Ottawa. We have benefited from Daniel's advice on a number of complex projects. He is a valued member of the CUI's network of Senior Associates and is someone whose skills and integrity are beyond reproach”.

Tony Sroka, Managing Partner and Director of Sustainable Development, CIMA Canada Inc.

“Daniel is a talented strategic thinker who continually brings innovation and creativity to his clients' decision support requirements. His professional approach to senior management consulting is highly recognized amongst his peers and clients. I have enjoyed working with Daniel in the past and look forward to future opportunities to work together on challenging projects”.

Danielle McDonald, Chief Executive Officer, Ottawa Public Library

“The Ottawa Public Library retained Danix Management Limited to produce the 2010 Facilities Investment and Growth Planning Study. The objectives of this study were: to analyze growth trend projections in the City of Ottawa between 2010 and 2030; assess the impact of these projected trends on the requirements for future or expanded facilities of the Ottawa Public Library; assess funding available for future facilities as identified through the City of Ottawa Development Charges Bylaw; and make recommendations for new or expanded facilities -  including conclusions as to potential appropriate locations.

The following year Danix was retained to produce an expenditure forecast for existing facilities to 2025.  This was delivered in the form of an Excel based prioritization tool that allows OPL staff to modify cost, revenue, facility condition and demand parameters to continuously recast spending priorities in relation to need and availability of funding.

Both pieces of work, produced by Daniel Nixey, were very well received by the OPL Facilities Planning Committee.  The work was developed to high standard and this information is now being used to assist the Board better understand its future facility expenditure requirements and rationalize its expenditure decisions.

Colin Hall, Vice President, Holinshed Research Group Inc.

“Daniel is a consummate professional. His ability to identify the essence of a problem quickly and ability to communicate clearly and succinctly with his clients sets him apart from the majority of project managers I have worked with over the years. His attention to detail and superb writing and presentation skills are second to none.”

Shirley Muir, President, The MediaBank Inc.
“I worked in a joint practice with Daniel on several projects helping communities explore the strengths of their creative economy. Daniel is a strong thinker and superb collaborator and has that rare ability to organize complex material into clear concepts. He kept projects on time, on budget, but even more importantly was always a pleasure to work with. Whenever I have a chance to work with him I jump at it.”

Jose Dengo, Vice President, CDG Environmental Advisors [Costa Rica]

“I've worked with Daniel in the planning and development of a very complex infrastructure project. His vision, leadership, and organizational skills have been paramount to the success achieved by the project. His no-nonsense approach keeps everyone on the team focused on their short-term tasks while never losing sight of the long-term goals of the project as a whole.”
