Growing up in Oklahoma, Dave spent several summers traveling with his dad, a furniture manufacturer representative, as he met with clients across the state. By high school, Dave started accompanying his father to the Furniture Market at the Dallas World Trade Center. These early experiences taught him three things that made an impact on his life’s direction: that he really enjoyed visiting and connecting with people, the importance of developing meaningful relationships, and that he wanted to live in Texas!
Before joining our firm, Dave honed his marketing and business development skills at a large global corporation and then started his own consulting firm. Both were opportunities to do what he is most passionate about—build new business by strategically identifying target markets and growing successful client relationships.
