Stefan Hetges

Founder and Chairman at smartShift Technologies

David helped us tremendously to sharpen our positioning in a strategic direction. He advised us on the challenges CIOs are confronted with in their daily jobs and how to position our solution to reduce risks and add value. He guided us to change the offering to bring more value to our customers. He was great to work with and I would take him into my team anytime.

Carl Waitz

Consultant at WellMed Medical Management

David arrived at Daymon after a rapid succession of three previous CIOs and what had been a very difficult time for the IT department. Within days though, it was obvious that David was immensely experienced and capable, and his leadership calmed the entire department. He subsequently led IT groups in disparate locations around the globe through major reorganization and downsizing under incredibly challenging pressures. I became and remain an admirer. I can think of no one better to lead absolutely any team of IT professionals.

Mike McNamara

Finance Manager Internal Audit at Meredith Corporation

David has put in place a world class people organization utilizing best practices principles and methodologies. As business lead for a complex SAP supply chain implementation at the company’s North Carolina factory, I had the opportunity to work with his team. I was impressed by their expertise and professionalism on the project. David is very proactive in identifying and implementing new cost effective solutions for the business, providing a real competitive advantage. His excellent managerial skills, coupled with his technical knowledge, are major contributing factors in his organization’s ability to provide word-class service to Coty. On a personal level, David was a pleasure to work with and a consummate professional. I would welcome the opportunity to do so again in the future.

Todd Larkin

Supply Chain Executive

David was my primary customer at Coty. He was excellent to work with because he possessed a driving vision for how IT could elevate Coty to the next level. His work to integrate Unilever Cosmetics into Coty through the use of SOA was an amazing achievement in the short time frame provided and was covered prominently in industry publications. His leadership and continued focus on long-term ROI will continue to benefit Coty worldwide well into the future.
