Daniel Sheehan

Daniel Sheehan is VP of ESG Strategy, Policy & Communications at Syneos Health. He is driven by the belief that our society and systems must continue to evolve to meet the needs of people. To do this, businesses especially must not only focus on long-term, sustainable growth, but also empathetically work toward building more just and equitable communities. (Read more ...)

On the Social Impact team at Syneos, he advances ESG (Environmental, Social & Governance) progress through policy, sustainability, access initiatives, stakeholder engagement and communications across the health sector — to lead this evolution.

As a consultant, a few of his most meaningful experiences include: designing strategic frameworks that creatively capture and communicate clients’ ESG ambitions; constructing Ferrero’s organizational structure and communications function, placing corporate citizenship at the center; bringing VF Corporation’s purpose to life for internal and external stakeholders; advocating for a more equitable New York and nation through the Coro Fellowship in Public Affairs; building awareness and advocacy behaviors of Millennials/Gen Z as it relates to ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic at GMHC; and advising HP Inc.’s industry-leading sustainability goals, thereby elevating their community impact and circular economy work. His professional past also includes projects at Porter Novelli, MSL, FleishmanHillard, Edelman’s Business + Social Purpose practice, The Rockefeller Foundation and the Boys & Girls Club of America.

Through Columbia University's Executive MPA program, he is continuing his commitment to advancing both business and society by exploring the future of ESG policy and economics. He also holds BAs in Strategic Communications and Human Service Studies from Elon University. As an undergraduate, he accepted nominations to four academic honor societies exemplifying excellence in leadership, communications, social sciences and human services; established an a cappella group and performed with them at Carnegie Hall; and was awarded for his contributions to building more just and LGBTQIA-inclusive communities in his home state of North Carolina.
