David’s journey can be described as “slacker to CEO.” He grew up in New York City, where his first passion was playing basketball. An average athlete at best, David often focused his game on supporting the more talented players. He believes that teams with less individual talent win by working together, selflessly. The chemistry of how teams collaborate and communicate and an individual’s ability to break out of mental models and play different roles – all contributed to great teams and would become key elements of JumpbyDesign philosophy on leadership and growth.
David overcame a lack of focus, ambitious overconfidence and the resulting early setbacks to become a founder and board member of several successful media, technology and services businesses. He has earned recognition as a C-level executive, successful serial entrepreneur, and advisor to CEOs.
In addition to JumpbyDesign, David is the Executive Chairman of the JumpCrew, a client acquisition platform whose partners benefit from its lead generation, nurturing and sales execution expertise. He is also on the Board of Staff Management Services.
Prior to JumpbyDesign, David was the co-founder and CEO of LocalVox, a content marketing platform acquired by The Berry Company in 2014 and he was previously the founder and CEO of The Bond Street Group, a staffing and recruitment firm, acquired by Human Edge.
