Director, Sales and Marketing
Since joining in January 2017 as InnovMarine’s first Director of Sales and Marketing, David’s focus has been on business development and strategic planning. Shortly after graduating in 1979 from Sheridan College’s Computer Science program, David instead opted for a different career, joining Prime Computer as a Product Marketing Manager; the start of a 35+ year sales career working in the field Information Technology.
David applies his previous experience, gained from working in the industrial manufacturing and building sectors, to help the marine industry address key challenges surrounding business transformation to digital shipbuilding, asset lifecycle management, and the impact of emerging technology on current and future workers.
David is a frequent presenter at industry conferences and chairs the SNAME O-52 Digital Twin Panel that aims to provide guidance to assist industry in the development of digital twin programs.
A native of Toronto, ON, David has lived in Nova Scotia since 2005 and, along with his son, operates a sailing charter business. When not on land or sea, David can be occasionally found jumping out of perfectly good airplanes.
