“It’s very satisfying to partner with member organizations to help them clarify issues and work through challenges. I really enjoy teaching classes where you can help participants develop their knowledge, skills, and perspectives. The variety of the work keeps things interesting and working with such knowledgeable peers has been amazing.”

David spent two years creating the HR Business Partner Program with fellow HR Professional, Alyssa Leonas. “It was a great experience to take an idea, see it come to
fruition, and see the positive impact that it has had in developing HR professionals into Business Partners,” David says.

When David is not helping Employers Council members, he likes to spend time with his wife and family, being active in his church, reading, and taking road trips.
