Biography

For the past 15 months, I have been very proud to lead Eve's sales, business development, and commercial partnerships organization. During this period, our team, together with the support of Eve's tremendous employees, have reached an incredible milestone of announcing letters of intent for up to 1,735 of our eVTOL aircraft.

The trust that Republic AirwaysSkyWest AirlinesBristow GroupAzorra and 14 additional customers have placed in Eve is a strong vote of confidence for our design strategy and engineering capability. As we look towards a bright 2022 of continued progress, I am happy to share that Eve will be announcing many more exciting milestones that benefit the entire Urban Air Mobility market, as demonstrated by our ongoing project with the CAA International - Part of the UK CAA where we have partnered with our peers and airports like London City Airport and Heathrow to prepare new markets for #UAM.

David earned a Master of International Business degree from the Fletcher School at Tufts University.

On the Fletcher Experience

Fletcher taught me a lot about navigating ambiguity to provide clarity when solving a tough problem. For example, Professor Rusty Tunnard's consulting class teaches you how to deliver a professional product in a short amount of time. By learning how to be resourceful with a new team, especially when a path to success is not evident, you become comfortable "being uncomfortable."  Since leaving Fletcher, I have been chosen to tackle some of the most difficult challenges my employer or team faced at the time, and the ability to start from scratch and chart a course forward is an invaluable skill that will help my career until the day I retire.
