Chief Financial Officer
Dave brings decades of experience and a successful track record in finance, law and executive leadership to Subject Matter. As Chief Financial Officer, he oversees and manages our finance and accounting operations, promoting the success and growth of the firm. He began his career in corporate finance and corporate tax law, before moving on to manage several private equity growth portfolio companies as a COO and CFO. Prior to the communications field, Dave worked in a variety of industries – including biotechnology, healthcare, real estate, aircraft maintenance, and more. He’s led many companies to a successful monetization event with a financial or strategic buyer. Outside of finance, Dave has played leading roles in strategic planning, legal, human resources, risk management, business operations, acquisition due diligence and integration. He believes the keys to success for his job are an entrepreneurial spirit and a good sense of humor (despite what his daughters think!).
