After holding marketing positions at Amana Refrigeration, Decisionmark and IES, Dave chose to leave the corporate world to teach marketing at the Tippie College of Business. Since coming to the college nearly 20 years ago, he has taught courses in general marketing, direct marketing, sales management, supervised field studies projects and was a founding board member of the Marketing Department’s Marketing Institute.  During the past eight years, Dave has primarily focused on sustainability issues in business.; teaching Marketing and Sustainability and Sustainable Product Innovation and Management. He has also served on numerous university committees and state boards that deal with environmental and social issues. Dave firmly believes that business can be a significant agent for positive change and can be used to bring entrepreneurial solutions to the environmental crisis.
