David served in the US Army where he protected our country and freedoms for over 22 years before retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel leading Operations & Finance for Central Command. He transitioned to Toyota Material Handling in 2013 where he started as General Manager and worked his way up to leading the organization as President. David was drawn to the Toyota principles of “Monozukuri Wa Hitozukuri” (Building Things is Building People) and “Kaizen” (Continuous Improvement) which immediately resonated with his approach to leadership and operational excellence. Under his guidance the company has continued to grow in headcount, locations, solutions offerings, market share, revenue, and profitability. David is also passionate about serving the community and actively gives his time in support of the STAR veteran transition program and Southeastern Guide Dogs. He and his wife Crystal have 6 children and are avid Oklahoma Sooners fans.
