Hi, I’m Daniel J. Wade, Managing Director & Chief Content Officer for Northrop & Johnson, responsible for overseeing the Strategic Partnerships team and Navigator Magazine. I am a 37-year veteran in travel and luxury lifestyle media with expertise in brand positioning, sales development and creative lifestyle partnerships in travel, yachting, private jets and the luxury goods sectors.

I also oversee all publishing and advertising activities for Navigator, Northrop & Johnson’s exclusive magazine which is sent to client homes and placed on yachts around the globe.

My Past

As President and Publisher, I built Elite Traveler's multimedia platforms, including Elitetraveler.com and Elite Traveler TV.
