Dave previously served on the boards of Cloakware (acquired by Irdeto), Ingrian Networks (acquired by SafeNet), and Reflectent (acquired by Citrix). Prior to Globespan, Dave was a Principal of JAFCO Ventures, where he focused on enterprise software opportunities. In his most recent operating positions, Dave held leadership roles at then start-up Family Education Network's (FEN), first as Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing and then as Senior Vice President and General Manager of FEN's distributed content management software business. Instrumental in FEN's rapid growth, he helped to establish the company's industry-leading position, with more than 4 million monthly visitors and a national network of more than 10,000 schools.

Working as a team is core to Dave's open and honest approach to achieving results, which to him means "exposing your weaknesses to your teammates and letting them help you through those areas as you help them through theirs."Dave's combined experience as a founder, operating executive and venture capitalist offers a powerful lens on the business of technology for the firm's portfolio companies. "I have experienced both success and failure, and I think both are critical in what I do now. Getting to ultimate success in this market involves taking risks. Sometimes those risks end up in failure. Our job is to help manage risk, minimize the impact of failure, capitalize on successes along the way and leverage it all for ultimate success."Dave is a member of Gartner's Executive Programs (EXP), a membership-based organization for 3,300 CIOs worldwide. He also a member of the New England Clean Energy Council innovation task force and a steering committee member of the Ignite Clean Energy Competition.
