Dave’s background in the collateral loan industry spans out more than 20 years. He began as a District Manager for a large chain of pawn shops in the Southeastern United States. There he was promoted to Director of Operations, overseeing all of North Florida and the Tampa Bay region. Taking the knowledge he gained as Director of Operations, he purchased his own pawn shop that he ran for eight years until making the decision to sell. As the current Director of Client Development for Data Age Business Systems, Dave brings a great deal of pawn industry knowledge to the table. Using his own experiences buying and selling a pawnshop, to overseeing the operations of a large statewide pawn shop chain, to working in pawn consulting, Dave works hand in hand with pawnbrokers to assist in their successful development.
