President & Chief Executive Officer
CityVet was founded on the core principle of putting people first, regardless if it’s our clients, staff, or veterinarians. When we do the right thing for them, and treat their pets as our own, it enables us to provide best in class veterinarian care. That north star is not only what attracted me to CityVet but remains my mission as we continue to serve our veterinarians, staff and customers.
Prior to joining CityVet, David was the first executive hired by the founding dentist at Deca Dental. While serving as Chief Operating Officer he helped grow the business from 28 to 85 locations and was awarded Dallas Business Journal’s 40 under 40 award for his efforts. David spent eight years working within several healthcare private equity portfolio companies building executive teams and then partnering onsite with the C-suite to drive sound strategic/operating improvements, financial performance, and investment decisions. In 2023, David was recognized again by Dallas Business Journal, but this time as one of DFW’s Most Admired CEOs.
David started his career at Lockheed Martin where he graduated from the Leadership Development Program and earned his Lean Six Sigma Blackbelt.
David has an MBA from Southern Methodist University and an Industrial Engineering degree from the University of Arkansas. He loves animals and spending time outside with his family.
