Prior to his Product leadership role, he spent 7 years as Chief Financial Officer for Transamerica’s Investments & Retirement division, which became a top 10 provider of both retirement plans and variable annuities during that time.
David works to combine the financial discipline of the CFO with an outside-in view of the insurance company and believes technology can restore the power of community to insurance
David is a bit of a nerd and still studies widely. He is married with 3 children and is a Navy veteran. He believes what we do becomes natural regardless of where we start. This makes him optimistic about the future, and he looks to help when he can.
