Over this period, David grew into a global HR leader at GE through various roles of progressive responsibility. In 2017, he retired to pursue a new chapter in his life as a coach and an independent consultant aiming to transform people and organizations.

Through his career at GE, he helped to build an international leadership bench, personally hiring and developing many senior business and functional leaders in key global markets. He developed a passion for coaching and had the opportunity to work closely with a variety of GE executives across the globe as they evolved and advanced in their careers.
