David Brown was very personable, available and prepped me for an amazing interview.

“David Brown has made additional Efforts to Understand the complexities and benefits of my career in order to assure a good client fit, as well as an optimal presentation to the client. In our first attempt, it did not bear fruit, but that had nothing in my opinion to do with David or myself. Some things just do not work out. David followed up regularly and kept me abreast of the progress. He’s now discussing other opportunities with me that may be relevant and potentially a good fit. Many Exec Recruiters can fill their client’s requirements, but not all of them make an additional concerted effort to frame the candidate optimally. For these efforts, I appreciate and applaud David.”

“David Brown is an exceptional individual that I could share my concerns and needs with during his search and ultimately my acceptance of the position I interviewed for recently. His insight into his client and ability to answer my questions helped me with my decision. I would work with him again.”

David was a great communicator and willing to discuss every aspect of the position and the company, even as he was learning the details. Consistent dialogue between partner, company, and candidate. Great job David!

“David has an easy likeability and a sincerity that invites trust and openness. I was proud to have him represent our company.”

“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.”

“David is a detail-oriented and people-oriented manager, always staying on task and never failing to show appreciation for the work of others. David continues to be a source of professional and personal reference; an individual to whom I turn to advice and support.”

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.
