“I enjoy educating my clients about the differences in elevator equipment and services. Based on this valuable information, clients make better decisions, and cost of ownership expectations are realized for their capital equipment.”

Dave serves as one of two national elevator consultants who manage all elevator consulting projects and ATIS consulting personnel. He has worked in the elevator industry since 1995 and has been consulting since 2002.
