Daniel Kantor

Principal / Creative Director

Daniel Kantor founded Kantor Group in 1995 after developing his brand strategy experience on the client side. As Director of Marketing for Coda Music Software (now MakeMusic), Kantor was the brand marketing vision behind the development, naming and launch of Finale, a music publishing software platform that became an instant hit and world standard. Kantor also held the position of Corporate Brand / Investor Relations Communications Director for Orthomet, a publicly traded medical device company. Kantor’s extensive experience in the med-tech arena further honed his brand management philosophy. He has also taught occasionally at the University of St. Thomas in their Fast Track entrepreneurial development program.
