Michael Daniel joined the 100 Black Men of Greater Charlotte in 2017. He is a mentor in the Movement of Youth (M.O.Y.) program where he currently has two mentees (Zander and Emmanuel). Community service has been a fundamental part of Michael’s fabric. He served as an after school mentor at Gideons Elementary every year during his matriculation at Morehouse College. Michael deems it his responsibility to help develop and mold M.O.Y. program participants into the next generation of African American leaders in Charlotte. Given the impact his mentors have had on his personal and professional development, the M.O.Y. program allows Michael to “pay it forward” in the same manner it was done for him.
Michael is currently a Vice President at Wells Fargo Securities. Prior to joining Wells Fargo, Michael worked for Goldman Sachs, both in London and New York, for six years. While at Goldman, Michael recruited for and was an alumnus of the City Fellowship program sponsored by the British Consulate. The City Fellowship program provides one year fellowships for professionals of color to gain international work experience in London’s financial services industry.
Michael earned his Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration with a concentration in Accounting from Morehouse College; and a Masters of Business Administration from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College. Michael is member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Beta Nu Lambda Chapter. He serves on the Beautillion Program committee which assists college bound seniors within Charlotte and surrounding areas in preparing them for college, securing scholarship funding and presenting them to their local community at a formal event. He is married to his lovely wife Lylah Holmes Daniel and is the proud father of two wonderful children: Madison (9) and Michael II (7).
