David M. is this month's Client Cameo. David was raised in an orphanage from 6 years old until he was 18 years old. He attended college for Liberal Arts, hoping to study a wide variety of subjects, before specializing in business marketing and sales.

 

David moved to southern California when he was 25 and worked his way up in numerous national companies such as A.B. Dick, Dennison, Smith Corona, Itek Business. His primary roles were that of a regional manager, a strategic marketing manager, and eventually he became a Senior Vice President.


After working with a well-known art consultant for many years, David eventually decided to start his own company advising wealthy families, large multinational corporations and Hollywood personalities in selecting and building important art collections.  Among his Hollywood clients over this twenty-year period were Alan Ladd Jr., Kirk Kerkorian, Duke Vincent, Freddie Fields, Doris Day, Rupert Murdoch and Lawrence Welk.


After retiring, David moved to Boulder in 1992 and knew from the start that this was where he wanted to live and stay.


David now enjoys helping younger business owners with Strategic Thinking and Planning, creative writing and creating art-based communications. His appreciation of remaining very curious in his many interests was strengthened during the many days and weeks of the pandemic, which helped keep his mental fortitude positive while staying home.


David has been most described by those that know him very well with these three phrases:

1. Always willing to provide supportive suggestions that were found to be valuable.

2. Reframing problems when asked to assist in providing new pathways for improved solutions to their challenges.

3. Holding strong to the positive thinking that has served David very well his whole life.


David has said he feels very fortunate these past five years to receive the varied services that Cultivates provides, especially the Fix-It, SnowBusters and the YardBusters services.


Thank you, David, for being a courteous and loyal client. We have enjoyed getting to know you and hearing some of your interesting life stories over the years.
