A former federal prosecutor in New York City, David spent 16 years at Microsoft leading teams fighting cybercrime. David then spent two years as Chief Operating Officer at AppEsteem, a company that certifies apps, and where he retains a minority, non-voting shareholder interest.
David’s commitment to balancing business success with consumer well-being dates to his work in consumer protection while in college, his job as a business journalist prior to law school, and most recently, in his instrumental push for the formation of CleanApps.org during his tenure at AppEsteem.
Now, he looks forward to fulfilling his vision for CleanApps.org: a thriving, member-driven organization that helps internet businesses prosper, promotes a fair app marketplace, and ensures respect for consumers.
