Growing up in a family of entrepreneurs, David started his own moving and storage company after graduating from The University of Alabama. The business thrived and grew exponentially across multiple cities before selling the business to the largest privately owned moving and storage company in the country. After the acquisition, David and his team quickly became the top earning region, receiving multiple awards in recognition for their accomplishments.
As a new dad, David had a stressful beach vacation and dreamt up the idea for his current venture, Beachy. Growing up in hospitality and being a ‘beach boy’ from the ages of 14-22, provided David with the insight and experience to modernize the beach vacation experience.
Starting from the simple idea, “Why can’t I book my beach chairs, the same way I book an airline seat, at the same time I make my hotel reservation?” The company has now evolved into a fully integrated ordering platform empowering recreation and food and beverage staff to deliver a better guest experience while increasing topline revenue by over 40% at hard to service outlets such as the beach and pool.
Beachy has won numerous awards for their innovative platform and have been published in articles around the world, including last years Phocuswright and VRMA conferences:
Phocuswright: People’s Choice, Emerging Company Tech Innovation of the Year in 2019
Phocuswright: Runner up Emerging Company Tech Innovation of the Year in 2019
VRMA: People’s Choice Tech Innovation of the Year 2019
VRMA: Tech Innovation of the Year 2019
David’s personal accolades include being one of Nashville’s 40 under 40, the youngest recipient of the award at 28.
David lives in Nashville, Tennessee with his wife, Jenna and their two kids, Sophie and Jacob.
