Daniel J. Haurey

Founder and President

For the past 25 years, Daniel Haurey has served as the visionary behind Exigent Technologies’ longstanding success in the IT services industry. His commitment to client success and passion for excellence inspires Exigent’s white-glove customer service and high-performance culture—both of which focus on leading customers toward the innovative technology they need for success.

Daniel founded Exigent in 1997 with a mission to meet the IT needs of small to midsized businesses across the New York/New Jersey region. Since then, Exigent has earned multiple accolades as a consultative business partner dedicated to delivering effective, efficient technology solutions that drive success in their clients’ businesses regardless of the industry. That commitment is reflected in a series of awards:

  • Six-time honoree on the annual, global MSP 501 list, which ranks the world’s most progressive Managed IT Service Providers (MSPs), according to MSPmentor’s 10th-annual MSP 501 Worldwide Company Rankings
  • Named by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, to the 2017 Managed IT Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Pioneer category. This annual list recognizes North American IT solution providers that take a leadership approach to delivering managed IT services
  • 2016 Best Places to Work in New Jersey by NJBIZ
  • In 2014, Daniel was honored as part of the MSPmentor 250 list, joining an exclusive class of the world’s top managed services provider (MSP) executives, entrepreneurs, and experts.

Over the decades, Exigent has built a clientele ranging from Carlos Bakery, featured in the Food Channel’s “Cake Boss,” to high-profile financial and legal firms—and everything in between. Regardless of size or vertical focus, Exigent treats each customer as a true partner, striving to identify the technology solutions that fit the business’ unique needs.

Daniel frequently speaks at industry events, lending his business and technical insights to fellow tech entrepreneurs. A believer in the power of partnership, Daniel has served as the vice president and president of the Trust X Alliance Big Apple Chapter, a highly selective community run by Ingram Micro, the world’s largest technology distributor.

Modeling the innovative behavior he expects from his team, Daniel is a lifelong learner, adding numerous technical certifications, including Cisco, CompTIA and Microsoft, to his associate degree in Business Administration. In 2020, he secured a highly sought-after advanced cybersecurity accreditation—the Certified Information Privacy Technologist (CIPT) designation—which focuses on competencies around securing complex, interconnected technologies while also deploying privacy solutions that ensure compliance with global data protection regulations.

Daniel’s commitment to providing insightful, innovative thinking for Exigent clients led him to launch Partners in Regulatory Compliance (PIRC) in 2018. PIRC is a consultative cybersecurity firm focused on guiding businesses through the complicated landscape of state, federal and international regulatory compliance.

Daniel remains a son of New Jersey, supporting local charities and nonprofit organizations including the Essex County Vocational Technical School in Newark, N.J., where he has sponsored  scholarships. He also regularly volunteers and has made involvement in local communities a priority within the Exigent culture.
