Dave's extraordinary career has all been built on a simple premise: The best way to succeed is to help others solve their challenges, overcome the headwinds they face, and disclose actionable opportunities to further their success.
First at Quest Software, and then IBM, Dave brought precisely that sort of thinking to the global commercial and government accounts he served through their enterprise software divisions. It was a mindset Dave brought with him as he co-founded several technology companies; the most recent of which included a data consulting company and a healthcare software company - which was acquired by Dr. Oz's ShareCare Corporation - and both of which reached revenues of multiple millions before enjoying (very) successful exits.
Dave brings the same thinking that made him so successful as a serial entrepreneur to our clients as he collaborates with organizational leaders to craft strategies and develop solutions that improve their bottom-line, safeguard their assets, achieve more than they ever had before.
