Making change in a professional firm is finding the overlap between what the firm needs and what people are willing to do, stretching and expanding that space to maximize the impact.
Over the course of his career, Dave worked at Sibson Consulting, serving clients, managing two offices, leading their professional services practice, and serving as chief operating officer. Additionally, he was Global Head of Human Resources at Russell Reynolds Associates, where he was instrumental in improving RRA’s partnership model and standards, solidifying worldwide performance management, training, client feedback and upward feedback programs.
Some of Dave’s experience highlights include:
Dave has a BA degree in English literature from Washington University in St. Louis. He is the author of Leading Firms: How Great Professional Service Firms Succeed & How Your Firm Can Too.
He is also a Vice Chair of the Governing Board of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists. The Bulletin believes that advances in science and technology should make life on Earth better, not worse. They equip the public, policy makers, and scientists with the information needed to demand, recognize, and support public policies that reduce man-made existential threats such as nuclear war, climate change, and disruptive technologies.
