Daniel Rumley
CHIEF PARTNERSHIP OFFICER

Daniel has more than a decade of entrepreneurial experience and educational stewardship. His relentless pursuit for growth led him to partner with Randy Seriguchi to create initiatives within UrbanEd Academy, to broaden the reach of education and opportunity. Out of this partnership, Man the Bay was brought to life, a program that embodies a long standing personal and professional north star to create a path for more men of color to be represented in classrooms. Daniel previously served as the Deputy Director at UrbanEd Academy, and he has this to say about his experience, “Humbling is the best word. UEA has provided me with multiple opportunities to witness growth, within myself, the staff, our Fellows through Man the Bay, and most importantly, the children and families we serve.”
