About David

I have a deep seated interest in transformative growth. I strongly believe the entrepreneurs and small business leaders of today that commit their business to a social purpose, will run the most successful companies in the future.

I have 12+ years of Business Development and Sales experience, primarily for startup entities. Currently I'm the Director of Business Development for Silentium Solutions. Prior to that my background is hands-on technical roles, primarily in the manufacturing industry. I have a solid background in setting up "best practice" manufacturing systems and processes that conform to Lean, Six-Sigma, ISO9001, ISO13485 and AS9100 standards. I have extensive experience in c-level sales and negotiations for high capital projects. My experience with software startups is limited to high level oversight on a few projects. I do have a firm grasp on the process and structure of these projects though. I can read basic code, but I'm not a designer or a programmer by any stretch. I'm currently looking at a couple of cannabis startups and am completely open to the idea. The bottom line for me is; If there is a net gain for the business, the customer and society, I would be a willing participant. I do have a world class marketing group and a network of angel investors I can work with if needed, who operate with the same philosophies.
