Meet the partners.
Peter Nyitrai is a co-founder at Voluntas Group (Copenhagen), where he built the MEA focused investment and advisory firm. Before this, he worked for The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) across Europe and Central Asia — serving Energy and Utilities, Industrial Goods, Transportation and Financial Sector clients — before advising the Executive Affairs Authority in Abu Dhabi on infrastructural investment turnarounds.
Peter follows a data-driven, deep-analysis based understanding and a holistic problem-solving approach — balancing across all stakeholders to not only focus on maximising the immediate bottom line but also to achieve long term financial returns. A spin-off of this approach led him to initiate and head BCG’s CEE Social Impact programme together with the World Economic Forum (WEF) where he has been in regular attendance.
Peter holds an MSc (Organisational and Social Psychology) from The London School of Economics and a BSc (Business Administration (Finance)) from Ritsumeikan University in Japan.

Dan has worked across an eclectic array of industry sectors and with organisations around the world, including Arla Foods, BP, HSBC, PETRONAS, P&G, as well as the governments of Bhutan, Malaysia, Singapore and UAE. In addition to extensive brand development experience, Dan has also held principal leadership positions within Omnicom (NYSE: OMC), WPP (LSE: WPP) and Interpublic Group (NYSE: IPG) firms.
