Site Logistics, Vendor Manager
As a Strategic Sourcing Manager at BD (Becton Dickinson) from 1991 to 2015, Dave’s global team oversaw Category Spends of 30 to 60 million dollars where he personally exceeded annual saving goals of one to two million dollars per year. Always a musician Dave performed regularly to keep sane and then somewhat insanely jumped into the festival business with his wife Patti. From 1998 to the present he’s overseen various festival portfolios including: logistics, security, vendors, signage, site management, sponsor fulfillment and licensed areas at festivals and events such as The Mississauga Waterfront Festival, Big Music Fest, Sing The Toronto Vocal Arts Festival, BackFortMac the Concert and Mississauga ITALFEST. A recipient of The Queens Golden Jubilee Medal he’s known for his volunteer work including being a jovial 6’4 Santa for various charities. Dave is looking forward to being a part of Mark Higgin’s Youth and Stars Success Walk.
