“I’ve known David for thirteen years, managed him for nine of those years. Professionally, David won the respect of management, co-workers, suppliers and, in particular, his customers. Intelligent, thorough, prompt, professional and engaging would be used in describing his selling style. As a person his honesty and integrity are above reproach.”

Before joining Joseph Chris Partners as a Senior Partner in 2016, I worked quite a bit in the industry that we service: real estate development and construction. When CEO Veronica Ramirez approached me about joining the team, it seemed like a natural marriage between my relationship-building skills and my background. After just two years here, I’m happy to say I am glad to have made the jump, as I landed as one of the company’s top producers with a large book of clients who come to me exclusively for their high-level search needs.

Prior to joining Joseph Chris, I was a Strategic Account Manager for SupplyWorks Inc., a Home Depot Company at its Houston office, supporting CBRE, Hines, Cousins-Parkway, JLL, and Trammel Crow to name a few. I received various company recognition for outstanding performance in understanding client needs while matching systems and products to improve efficiency and reduce costs.

I was also a Partner and Vice President of a Texas-based Private Equity company specializing in two markets; Oil & Gas Development and Master Planned Community Development and home building. I served as Vice President of PetroReal Oil and Gas and President of Regatta Development Corp where I lead company expansion five times in five years. Each business required team and talent coordination to manage the ventures as they rapidly expanded. The responsibilities included capital management, P&L responsibility, budgeting and planning, talent and team coordination, acquisition analysis, interaction with high net worth investors and commercial bankers.

Currently, I volunteer on MIT’s Enterprise Forums’ ‘New Venture Clinic’ team helping start-up businesses at the Houston Technology Center.

I grew up in New Jersey and became an experienced sailor while crewing for my dad. I have been lucky enough to have raced internationally including transatlantic competition. When I moved to Central Texas, I missed sailing, so I founded the Belton Lake Boat Club and its sailboat racing fleet. I also taught martial arts and have a black-belt, so I can protect my sailboat passengers from marauding pirates (or just get some good cardio in).

Other pastimes have included cycling, motorcycling and recreational flying. My dog, Einstein, is a certified Service Dog, and he’s my buddy. He works with my 91 year old mom every day. She is blind and he provides her with comfort and protection and she provides him with love. I enjoyed taking him to the nursing home where my father lived before he passed and letting him visit with the folks living there.

Dad’s lesson: Do your homework.

I was thinking about my work as a recruiter and remembered a lesson my father taught me many years ago. I was a senior in college and asked him if he had any advice before going to a couple important job interviews. “Do your homework before you meet them, know something positive about the company […]
