Gregory F. Daniel, MD, MBA

Chief Executive Officer

Some people have great ideas. Others make things happen. Greg Daniel, a proven entrepreneur and visionary, is one of those rare individuals who does both. With more than 20 years of in the medical, business and real estate development fields, Dr. Daniel brings a unique mix of skill, experience, knowledge, and a keen business sense to his role at Nidus Development.

In 2000 Dr. Daniel founded The Exigence Group, an organization that grew to comprise 40 business entities, from emergency medicine management and staffing and urgent care centers to real estate development. He served as the group’s CEO until 2012 when The Exigence Group joined TeamHealth as Exigence Division of TeamHealth. Under Dr. Daniel’s guidance, Exigence expanded its footprint, enhanced its reputation and became known for strong management and fiscal responsibility. With attention to detail and an eye on the future, he stressed the importance of innovation within the organization to meet emerging client needs.

For Legacy Woods Estates, Dr. Daniel envisions a beautiful equestrian community, nestled alongside his 40 sprawling acres that make up The

Legacy Equestrian Center.  Over the years, the tree-lined driveway and outside hunt field of Legacy Equestrian Center have become a symbol of quality for Western New York horse farms. The farm, previously operated by the world renowned horseman Chuckie Graham, was known as CP Graham Stables for many years. In 2012, Dr. Greg Daniel purchased the estate from the Casilio’s and renamed it Legacy Equestrian Center.

The historic barn is the centerpiece of the property, with stalls to accommodate 40 horses. The renovated facility includes a 60 x 170 lighted indoor riding area with rubber footing, a heated viewing lounge and restrooms. Outdoors there is a 120′ x 260′ sand arena, fully equipped with a well maintained jump course and a viewing stand. In addition, there is acreage maintained for leisure riding throughout the property.

Legacy Woods Estates promises to provide a quaint country setting within a quiet suburban environment.  It is designed to be a walkable community, complete with nature paths, a nearby creek, and an occasional deer or two or three.  Horse-riding trails are planned to run through the development, connecting to Legacy Equestrian Center.

Dr. Daniel earned his doctorate of medicine and a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and is licensed to practice medicine in eight states. He earned his MBA from the University of California, Irvine, and was named “Best Leader” for his class. He was a member of the board of governors for the Catholic Independent Practice Association of Western New York (now known as Catholic Medical Partners) for 10 years, where he served on the negotiation and compensation and utilization committees. He served as a flight surgeon in the U.S. Air Force Reserves, retiring at the rank of Major.
