Managing Director – Olpro
About Daniel Walton
I left University in 1998 with a Degree in Criminology but immedietly went into retail and used the skills I’d learn’t within sociology and psychology to go into business development, sales and purchasing. Having been Director of three outdoor leisure companies in 2011 I founded OLPRO – a true British camping brand. OLPRO launched a fully shoppable website in 2013 which has seen strong growth every year as well as becoming a stronger and stronger, stand out, camping brand.
