While working for SAP, a multi-billion dollar software company, nearly 20 years ago, Dave was advised to "walk faster and smile less, because perception is reality". I took this to heart and started a business based around the antithesis of this advice. It was 2001 when Dave started what became Peach, a Learning Platform software company, and eventually sold to AKKR, a private equity firm. Dave is currently the founder of PropFuel.com, a Feedback Automation Platform designed to capture the voice of your stakeholders: employees, customers, members, etc... through feedback campaigns.
