Here is what some of my past colleagues and current clients say about what it is like to work with me: 

“Dave is a creative, passionate marketer who is able to keep the business goals at hand while driving go-to-market objectives. He is a solid and experienced marketing and sales leader who brings passion and energy to the early stage environment, capable of communicating with boards, executives and all levels of the enterprise.”
— Michael Bayer, CFO, iZotope
“Dave was a key player in setting the strategic direction for the company and growing the company 4-fold in as many years. Dave drove many successful initiatives; revenue growth, strengthening of our brand, better engagement with our customers/community, and the development of a modern go-to-market capacity within the company. I would not hesitate to recommend Dave as a strategic partner and leader in the realm of Sales and Marketing.”
— Jonathan Bailey, CTO, iZotope
“Within one month of diving in, Dave helped me define a simple vision, establish clear organization-wide KPIs and coach my marketing and sales team to success both as individuals and as team members. Dave brings a truly unique, passionate and effective combination of executive growth-hacker and leadership coach. I feel fortunate to be working with him now and can’t wait to see how the bright future unfolds!”
— Douglas Price, President, Pro Sound Effects
“Dave astutely managed incredible growth in starting up Ableton’s US office, but more important to me was forming the foundations for my career under his tutelage. He’s also the first person to look to for advice on any subject, from business to jazz drumming.”
— Jesse Terry, Product Owner for Push, Ableton

“Dave led Ableton’s US operations while I was Director of Direct Sales at Ableton’s headquarter in Berlin. His track record has been exceptionally strong in various aspects: In sales results under Dave’s tenure, Ableton’s US business grew by orders of magnitude, and considerably faster than Ableton’s worldwide business. Dave also took a leading role in shaping and pushing the Ableton brand, not only for the US market but globally. Also, he’s one of those rare guys who manage to combine hardcore professionalism on the one side with being an incredibly relaxed, nice and fun guy to have around.”
— Martin Fröhlich, Director of Direct Sales, Ableton
