Dave is regarded as an expert in Existing Building Operations and Maintenance (O+M) as well as Sustainable Facilities Management. He has positively impacted the operations and maintenance of millions of square feet of office, hospitality, retail and specialty purpose facilities throughout his career.
Dave is known as the champion of green cleaning and was the first business owner to LEED the way and take the leap transitioning his organization’s mission and culture to be the first 100% green cleaning company in the southwest. Dave’s commercial cleaning business, ServiceMax Cleaning Systems, operated successfully and grew for over 19 years.
After Selling ServiceMax in 2013, Dave continued his passion for learning and became a WELL AP. He began working on Military projects and Guiding Principles as he founded GRN Vision. As GRN Vision continued to provide Green Building Certifications for owners and developers, Dave became a LEED AP BD+C to help clients with new construction projects. Bringing this new skill set provided a unique opportunity to begin implementing operational best practices to a new facility.
Dave is now a LEED Faculty member, acknowledged public speaker and leadership trainer. He continues to advocate for Green Building in his daily life as well as providing courses on Green Globes, LEED and WELL Building Standards. Tying corporate culture into community education and awareness is a constant process at GRN Vision. Dave loves helping other businesses realize this connection through Sustainability Inventories and has already done so with McCarran International Airport and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.
On the weekends you can find Dave running and biking at Red Rock as well as spending time with his wife and two teenage children. You might not know that Dave is a Spartan athlete who loves to challenge himself. He is an active board member for the local ALS chapter and his dream is to one day work on a WELL Building Certification project.
