Dave’s been with FORREC right from the start, so there’s not much he doesn’t know about our business. Especially when it comes to client relationships. You could say he’s celebrating his Pearl Anniversary with some of the world’s biggest entertainment brands – that’s 30 years together.
Dave has overseen major projects for Universal Studios, Six Flags and Nickelodeon. As a project management executive, Dave knows how to maintain the balance between exciting guest experiences and viable business strategies. He’s also an operational wizard whose knowledge of the inner workings of parks is impressive. Dave has led projects on six continents and continues to personally experience as many theme parks and water parks as possible. In fact, we suspect that’s why he has a young child – which is his excuse to visit five parks in six days! Having witnessed the evolution of entertainment design first-hand, Dave knows what still works and what doesn’t. Dave obsesses about optimum guest distribution and countless details that make a park successful, but deep down, he just wants people to have the most fun possible.
