Dave is passionate about business. As a partner of Amplify & RLB, he has the privilege of being the accountant and advisor to a lot of fantastic businesses run by smart business people. The framing of strategy, understanding what metrics are important, organizational structure, what levers to push to get the most impact, people engagement, client service processes are what Dave is most excited about.
In addition to his passion for business, he also loves to learn. He does a lot of reading and researching about a breadth of topics. He takes this as an opportunity to expand his knowledge.
Outside of his own business, Dave is involved in Futurpreneur Canada and Innovation Guelph, both of which help new business owners start their own business ventures.
Dave considers himself lucky to have the opportunity to be significantly involved in building businesses. In the past, his partners have given him the opportunity to lead RLB as Managing Partner of the firm and recently he has taken on the role of People Investment Officer. Since having stepped back from the Managing Partner role, Dave has focused on building a new business: Amplify LLP.
