I served on Dave's Board of Directors for over a decade and was amazed at the consistent and sustained double-digit growth he drove. A strong value proposition and vision... intense strategic planning...constant innovation... personal hands-on communication in an entrepreneurial culture. Dave's no nonsense, run through a brick wall, do what it takes toughness while having fun' approach served as a blueprint for me when I co-founded and built a leading natural beauty company.”
