At the age of 12, he spotted a need and founded Global Video on his family's kitchen table. As a teenager, he grew the business into the leading U.S. producer and distributor of educational videos. When Daryl was 24, Nasdaq-listed School Specialty, Inc., the nation's largest school supplier, acquired Global Video.
