“Dave is a seasoned professional with great commercial and business acumen. He can provide a range of skills from building commercial and financial models to providing strategic planning frameworks and considerations. He is also very skilled at packaging key communications in formats that are clear, concise, and at the appropriate summary level for the intended audience. He is a team player and works well with both scientific and business colleagues.”
Carol Gallagher, CEO Calistoga
"I’ve worked with Dave for nearly 8 years at 2 biotech companies. He is an experienced commercial executive who has the rare ability to provide both strategic advice and tactical support. Dave was my first hire at ZS Pharma when we were a small, development-stage company. He played a pivotal role in establishing our product’s market potential, our early brand plan, our foundational market research, and global forecast -- all of which contributed to successful investor fundraising, an IPO, and M&A. His work continues to serve as the foundation for our commercialization plan today as we build a fully integrated commercial organization and prepare for product launch. He is a pleasure to work with, and I would recommend him to any company requiring commercialization expertise."
Cynthia Smith, CCO ZS Pharma
"Dave was a commercial/marketing consultant to me and many of the cross functional commercial team members at Affymax Inc. for more than 6 years. He has a remarkable ability to support both Board level strategic content and analytical tactical projects and does so with a clear, effective communication style and presence. He consistently delivered on short timelines and under stressful pre launch and launch conditions while all the time remaining professional and demonstrating supportive leadership. I highly recommend Dave and would welcome working with him again in any capacity."
