Though the rest of the team rarely sees Dave in the office, they all realize the fruits of his hard work and tireless efforts outside of it. Dave began his career at Penna Powers as a young intern and still holds his fondest memory at the agency as the day John Haynes finally remembered his name and that he was no longer working for free. Dave holds professional accreditation from the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) and has been awarded a prestigious international PRSA Silver Anvil Award for the Olympic Transportation “Know Before You Go” campaign. Dave devotes himself to his clients and currently oversees strategic communications for some of UDOT’s biggest projects, including I-15 CORE, Mountain View Corridor and the TravelWise program. With Dave on your team, you can rest assured that your campaign is in very capable hands. He doesn’t rest until he knows that a campaign will work and is being executed in a way that will yield solid results.

“What I love about Penna Powers is the people, the passion, the product, the creativity, the professionalism, the talent and the results. We’re truly committed to our industry, our jobs and our clients.”

Though Dave works tirelessly for Penna Powers’s clients, his work priorities are superseded by his family and followed by his love for Mexican food and refereeing basketball. On the rare occasion that Dave is in his office, you can view the trophies of his other woodland passion.
