David is responsible for creative strategy, corporate branding, and business development for Hargrove. He has led the company’s creative team through extraordinary growth as a direct result of his ability to translate client messaging and brand identities into immersive event experiences. Since 1997, he has supported thousands of Hargrove projects including some of the most complex meetings on the world stage: the G20 (Pittsburgh) Summit, the 2012 NATO Summit, the 2010 and 2016 Nuclear Security Summits, and the 2014 and 2016 Our Ocean Conferences. David also conceptualized the 2012 and 2016 Democratic National Conventions and every presidential inauguration since 2001. He has contributed to some of our most renowned trade shows and a wide array of exhibit programs and award-winning experiential activations. Most recently, David has designed virtual and hybrid experiences for clients who have pivoted from in-person events, such as the legacy, 5,000-person global meeting for a Fortune 50 high-tech company.
