David, as I reflect back on the past seven years that we have been working together, I am amazed at our Company’s growth and stability. The Strategic Plans you helped us build (and execute) have resulted in the doubling of our sales while still maintaining the Core Values and DNA our organization has been living for eight-plus decades. I remain incredibly grateful for the energy and clarity you continue to bring to our growing Team. With the greatest of gratitude, Brian.

- Brian Lepsis, President, Shingle & Gibb Automation

David has created a forever, game changing difference in my business. We now employ the efforts that he wrung out of us in everything we plan, discuss or strive to achieve. This endeavor is probably the biggest single turning point of our 40-year history. David dug deep into the psyche of our company and clearly understood everything about us. He had the nerve and audacity to direct our internal differences and doubt…and channel them into productive discovery moments. I highly recommend David.

- Tom Russo, President, doeLegal
