Growing Accomplishments 
In the 1990s, David helped grow revenues of an international startup company to $30 million in just five years and participated in its sale to a Swedish corporation. In 2002, he served as COO and CEO of a credit card service company that was in drastic need of a turnaround. “In 10 months, we got the company back to positive cash flow, invested in the development of new products, and sold the firm at a profit two years later.

Valuable Lesson
“I was working and paying for college myself, so affordability was key. NYIT represented great value for the money.”

“Be happy with who you are and what you’re doing.”

Nothing Wrong With Horsing Around
