I sincerely enjoy empowering folks to work through issues and achieve great outcomes. But working with exceptionally passionate and talented people—that’s what I love most about my job.

With over 20 years of experience in management, sales, recruiting and government contracting, Dave is accomplished in all aspects of shepherding and scaling a business. He orchestrates resources and priorities with the level of precision needed in order to maintain and build upon CHIEF's reputation for the highest quality of work and unparalleled customer service. He also acts as CHIEF's government compliance officer, overseeing capture management, compliance and contract performance. Dave has been the recipient of Washington-based SmartCEO magazine’s Executive Management Award for multiple years, a tribute to his work as a C-suite executive who consistently goes above and beyond to support and lead his organization.

Dave holds a BS in Business Administration from the University of Connecticut, a clear indicator of his early leanings towards operational excellence.
