Daniel works to ensure we deliver on his founding vision for Finch Brands, while supporting our clients as an advisor and connector.

A retailer, business builder, investor, and philanthropist, Daniel Erlbaum co-founded Finch Brands after serving as an original investor and Vice President at David’s Bridal. During his tenure, the company grew from a relative start-up into a bridal category powerhouse with 120 superstores nationwide. Daniel touched every functional area of the company, and his contributions were pivotal to the company’s IPO and ultimate acquisition; much of the vision for Finch Brands’ holistic approach was borne through this success story. Throughout his career, he has invested in operating companies at varying stages of the growth cycle and is invested in numerous private equity groups. His most active direct holding is Bleacher Creatures, an emerging licensed products company with a focus on replicating the likeness of celebrities as plush figures for the enjoyment of kids and collectors. Active in the community, Daniel chairs the board of the Jewish Relief Agency and is deeply involved in other philanthropic organizations.
