After graduating from the University of Rhode Island with a bachelor degree in Business Administration, David went to work for Modern Continental Construction Company working on the Central Artery Tunnel Project in Boston, Massachusetts (The Big Dig). Employed as a Purchasing Agent, not only did he purchase all large scale construction materials but also purchased 250 fleet vehicles (cars, light duty and heavy duty trucks) per year for construction operations. He also maintained all maintenance records and all ownership titles for a 1,300 vehicle fleet.
Deciding to leave the cold weather, David moved to Turlock, CA and came to work for the Turlock Irrigation District as a Senior Buyer and soon after, he was promoted to the Position of Purchasing Supervisor. David worked closely with the Fleet Department, purchasing all vehicles for the fleet since his arrival to the District. In August of 2010, the position of Fleet Analyst opened within the District and was a perfect fit for David to work exclusively with the District’s fleet.
David became an official member of NAFA in October, 2010, although he attended a number of meetings prior to joining. He is excited to be serving NAFA.
