David joined TSMGI in 2017 to help lead Communications and Public Relations for the agency. David began his career in retail, followed by an unexpected landing in advertising which set the foundation for two decades of consumer marketing and communications work. At DDB Chicago, David developed campaigns in the pharmaceutical space for Novartis, launching first-in-class prescription medications and growing share for OTC products. David then led the DDB team responsible for McDonald’s new product innovation and testing. Ultimately, David migrated to McDonald’s and began a 10-year span in both Global Family Marketing and Global Communications. While with McDonald’s, David led high-profile initiatives such as the redesign of Ronald McDonald, the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, and McDonald’s commitment to children’s well-being. David likes to unwind by watching mindless reality TV and enjoys his 1.5-mile commute so he can spend more time with his wife, three kids, and beloved Schnoodle.
