As the Chair of Vistage 4777 my goal is to ensure that each member receives outstanding value for the investment of their time and money. Part of that value is my goal to provide excellent coaching of each member and an environment which provides issue processing that exceeds the member’s expectations.
I have been a business owner and an entrepreneur for more than 40 years. I lived in Silicon Valley for 28 years and as a CEO of a small business developed a mastermind group to find ways to grow a high-tech company in an exceptional way. My experience with that group and that company led me to a methodology of developing a top performing team, and with that team develop a powerful business strategy to lead the market and capture market share.
My expertise is in creating powerful business strategies, achieving key goals, developing top leaders and high-performing teams, creating loyal customer partnerships and accessing talent and technology through mergers and acquisitions.
I have leveraged this expertise in the past as the top leader in multiple businesses.
For example, as a CEO I assembled and retained a top performing team which executed industry leadership products and developed strategic partnerships with customers and manufacturing partners which grew the business from $7 million a year to $100 million a year in seven years.
With a Fortune 500 company, I was a vice president and general manager of $100 million division. Here, I assembled and retained a top performing team which developed leadership products for the flat panel display market. By establishing a strategic partnership with the worldwide leading manufacturer of displays, we grew the business to $300 million in three years.
As the chair of my CEO mastermind group I have helped my members to achieve their personal and professional goals, which included growing businesses by a factor of up to 100% in two years. Some of the members have started businesses literally in their garages and have grown the businesses well beyond their original expectations.
The value I bring to my members is my expertise is in creating powerful business strategies, growing businesses rapidly, developing top leaders and high-performing teams, creating loyal customer partnerships, accessing talent and technology through mergers and acquisitions.
A highlight about Dave’s personal side
I grew up in Arizona and after 10 years in the semiconductor industry moved to the bay area where I became an avid skier. I found ways to become a black diamond skier and with my daughter and wife enjoyed the long ski weekends which we managed to carve out of the routine of family life. I still enjoy skiing and traveling. After retiring early and traveling and skiing to my great joy, my passion has become to help others exceed their own expectations personally and professionally.
