Singlewire Spotlight: David


Each month, we feature one of our stellar team members on our blog. Learn more about them and what they do at Singlewire.

How long have you been at Singlewire and what’s your position?

I joined in May 2016, so three years now. My role is Business Development within Singlewire with a focus on creating the highest company valuation possible.

Please describe what you do at Singlewire.

Three work avenues that are always top of mind are:

1. Expanding the Cisco relationship and product touch points

2. Creating new strategic partnerships outside Cisco that help us diversify and grow new paths for future bookings

3. Expanding our business bookings in Europe and Middle East.

What do you like best about working at Singlewire?

Having worked at all types of companies, what I cherish most is the culture and environment. It starts with senior leadership and flows downward. This is what I often tell others when they ask about Singlewire. They know the products are very good, but few companies can stir the right ingredients together and create a place that people love to work at.

What have you gained from working at Singlewire?

Good friendships, appreciation of the talent and passion inside Singlewire and a love of cheese curds.

Where do you see Singlewire in the next five years?

The value proposition that we deliver is timely and universal. We have very little standing in our way to continue to see excellent growth year over year. I expect in five years that any company buying or updating their UC platform will see InformaCast as a necessary component of their UC solution. I also see exceeding $100 M in revenues as very achievable.

What are your favorite things to do outside of work?

Focus on fitness; work in my yard/garden; bake sourdough bread; play with my English bulldog, Gabby; spend time with my grandchildren, Emma, Charlie and soon-to-be-named; outdoors activities such as scuba diving and backpacking; and traveling the world.

What’s the best place you’ve traveled to and why?

I don’t have one favorite place. I enjoy Paris and want to spend a year there in the future. The Paris food and sites are always appealing, as is the easy access to the rest of Europe as a base of travel. Anyplace in the Caribbean is a desire, as a place for scuba, sailing and good fish for eating. My favorite US place away from home is Colorado, for the hiking, skiing and fly fishing.

If you could witness any historical event, what would you want to witness?

Jerusalem at the time of Jesus.

What TV show or movie are you most ashamed to admit you love?

Game of Thrones.

Tell us a little about your family?

Married to Colleen for 39 years. We have two daughters, Sarah and Kate. Sarah is 38 and an Oncology Nurse Practitioner, married to Tim Smith. They have two children, Emma and Charlie, with another on the way. Kate is 31 and a world traveler, having lived in Australia the past year. I have two brothers in Houston in the oil business and a sister in Ohio. Both of my parents reside in Houston.

What was the last book you read?

Lethal White by Robert Galbraith.

What is the best concert you’ve ever attended?

Paul McCartney and Wings.

Where’s your hometown?

Dallas, Texas.
