    just about every marketing task in a marketing department including: drafting and publishing datasheets and press releases, developing presentations and speeches, setting up and constructing tradeshow booths, selecting 'talent' for radio and television commercials, selecting product colors, developing corporate identity programs and systems, commissioning and conducting extensive market and brand research, developing product roadmaps and product line marketing programs, distribution promotion programs, sales programs, retail promotion programs, etc., David has written press releases, been a product marketing manager, managed a PR agency staff of almost 40 people, been a Marketing Consultant at the Gartner Group, developed product roadmaps, launched new products, conducted market research, presented at major industry conferences (Gartner Group, Dataquest, Comdex, etc.),and developed corporate identity and branding programs.

    David has interfaced with members of Boards of Directors since 1982. As an executive at the Gartner Group he met and worked with well over a hundred executives from high technology firms from the U.S., Europe Japan, Korea and Taiwan for almost a decade. In industry, David has regularly met with executives from other firms in customer meetings, at trade shows and other industry events.

    In larger companies, there were existing product lines (some with over twenty products) that needed attention/portfolio management. David has also led efforts to significantly reduce inventory, while continuing to introduce new products. He has led several product and product-line launches in industry (and others as a consultant). At PageNet, David led the efforts to launch the first two-way wireless messaging network.

    David has had P&L experience for products throughout their lifecycles. Most of that experience has been hardware related, but some has been in software.

    He has worked closely with sales and business development teams throughout his career, sometimes as the product (industry analyst/consulting/PR) and others to get products evaluated by potential customers. He has helped identify potential partners and target customers, as well as, participated in sales calls to help move the business process forward.

    From a leadership perspective, for almost a decade, David functioned with strong team environments as a consultant. InfoCorp, Gartner and Regis McKenna were all organizations that depended upon team structures to assist clients, formulate strategy and develop tactics. His experience is that too many executives tend to apply their own experience in a "cookie cutter" approach to new situations, without considering the differences between what they learned in the past and the current situation. As a consultant, David learned to listen well and has had the opportunity to be involved in situations dozens of times, rather than most in industry executives who may have been involved in any given situation far less than that.

    When you speak with David personally you will find he is very well spoken and articulate. He has spoken in front of audiences ranging from one-on-one meetings to well over two thousand meeting attendees. David has demonstrated in his career that he is a very quick study (learned as a consultant), that he has a strong (positive) presence in customer meetings, and is capable of serving in a public role for a company, working with investors, the press, industry analysts and other industry partners.

Candidate Compensation:

David’s compensation at his current company consists of a $170K salary (none of the executives have bonuses), stplus approximately 1.25% of outstanding shares, plus $12K per year to provide for a corporate apartment; at his 1

    Previous Company it consisted of $200K base (where again none of the executives had a bonus), plus stock; at Mitsubishi it consisted of $180K base plus $60K bonus, plus a company matching 401K program. If the opportunity presented warranted it, David is willing to relocate, but would want to make sure that his interim living expenses were covered during the period of transitioning his family.
