FuseIT's Daniel Ballinger is New Zealand's first Salesforce MVP and one of only a handful globally.

Daniel has worked at FuseIT since 2005 and is expert with a number of development technologies including Salesforce, .NET and Sitecore. His primary role is helping several international clients with their Salesforce development needs but when he has a spare minute you can be sure he will be working on the FuseIT SFDC Explorer tool, a project he began back in 2010.

You may have already come across Daniel as he is a major contributor to the Salesforce Stack Exchange and runs the popular FishOfPrey.com blog. One of his most popular contributions to the Salesforce community is the custom WSDL2Apex implementation to extend support for SOAP based web services. He won a Hackathon to improve the open source Salesforce Wsdl2Apex support.

Daniel was a presenter at Dreamforce 2014 in San Francisco and is leader of the Microsoft User Group in Nelson. Outside of work he enjoys canoe polo and sea/river kayaking. Recently he began gathering components to get started in FPV quadcopter racing.
