As an original founder and the Chief Executive Officer, David is responsible for setting the company’s overall strategy and vision. David puts a definite emphasis on delivering products and services that exceed client expectations. David started his career in the savings and loan industry and moved to the insurance industry in the 80s before launching his entrepreneurial ventures in 1991 with a private investigation company. After observing his colleagues’ success with litigation support companies, David moved out of his hometown of Austin, Texas to start his own in 1994. Although it started as a paper-based discovery firm, technology was swiftly advancing, and David incorporated e-Discovery progressively into his companies. David sold his first litigation-support company to IKON, where he successfully accomplished his required earn-out before he started several more very successful litigation-support companies. In 2002, David launched American Data Services, which subsequently became Advanced Discovery through strategic mergers.
