Tom's executive experience spans across many industries including retail management, product management, distribution logistics, mortgage, finance, small business ownership, franchising, Real Estate, and mergers & acquisitions. Tom held an executive position with a top Powersports Aftermarket Distributorship which provides the foundation of specific industry knowledge necessary to service the Powersports Industry vertical. During this tenure, Tom negotiated multi-million dollar purchase orders with many of the Powersports Industry's top manufacturers. Tom also interfaced extensively with the sales team and dealership customer base. He then moved on to a Fortune 500 Mortgage firm specializing in new construction financing. While this role was a great learning experience, Tom discovered his passion was for entrepreneurship which is ever present in the Powersports Industry. Tom began his own franchised business which led to participating in franchise sales and eventually larger mergers & acquisitions. It was not long before his zeal for entrepreneurship led him back to the Powersports Industry in the role of mergers and acquisitions. Tom's professional success and well-rounded experience transcends the skills necessary for successful M&A transactions which drive the Powersports Listings Mergers & Acquisitions firm. Tom founded Powersports Listings M&A in 2001 and the company has been revolutionizing the buying and selling of dealerships and middle market businesses ever since.

Within three years of graduating college, David had already realized success with two different entrepreneurial startups in the offset printing industry, both of which became worldwide industry leaders in their respective fields.

It is this experience that led David to have a love and appreciation of the mergers and acquisitions process, both from a personal and professional level, which has now transcended with him to the powersports industry. Since 2002 David has been directly involved in the ownership changes at over 10 dealerships and now brings this experience directly to the Powersports Listings team.
