Dave dropped out of University of Michigan in his home state and moved to Los Angeles with his rock band in pursuit of a career in music. Luckily that did not pan out because he founded our sister company, ASC Process Systems, and grew it into the industry-leading supplier and manufacturer of autoclaves and control systems for the aerospace composites industry. Dave’s an engineer at heart and is especially passionate about developing mission critical software applications for manufacturing and automation. His 30 years of experience writing software and compiling a diverse set of applications is the inspiration for the Appward platform and its citizen apps. He still plays a tune on the guitar when he has a free second, is an avid swimmer and loves hiking different mountain ranges around California on the weekends. He and Gudrun (see our CFO) have two wonderful kids.
