Direct of Sales & National Chain Accounts East
After graduating from the University of South Florida in 2002, Dave began working a few sales and customer service jobs until his Friday night happy hour passion of craft beer got the best of him in 2013.
Taking a beer tour for the first time with some friends led to a part-time job with the beginnings of The Brew Bus and Brew Bus Brewing in Tampa, FL. Eventually going full time with the growing start up, those first few years of hustle and drive made him realize he was built for the beverage industry.
Working alongside distributors, supplier reps, brewers, and owners, Dave has learned what it takes to create the highest quality products and build the strategic plans necessary to navigate any market. More than anything though, he knows that building community, cultivating skill sets and sharing knowledge are most important. Whether it be craft beer, hand crafted spirits, or fine wine he is a passionate advocate of the ever-expanding craft beverage segment in the Sunshine State.
Dave enjoys life on Florida Sun-coast, boating, hiking, golfing and cooking, but most importantly, spending time with family and close friends.
