NYC based digital marketing executive. Online space for 15+ years at NetGravity, @DoubleClick, @Google, @Clickable, @Syncapse. Now focused on my own product management and operations consulting practice.
I worked with Dave at the SEMPO booth at the SMX trade show at the Javits Center. From other SEMPO booth members to exhibitors at other companies, the assessment is the same: "Dave Fall is a good guy and has a wealth of knowledge in the Search Marketing industry". Agreed.
Dave was a phenomenal manager. I learned a great deal from my time reporting to Dave.His grace under pressure and command of the industry are great assets to Doubleclick.
David was one of the strongest people managers I have worked for. He was skilled at balancing client needs with professional career growth of the people he managed. I have worked with David since in a client / consultant relationship and highly recommend him.
I have been fortunate to work with David throughout my career at DoubleClick. His ability to develop sound strategies and efficiently manage teams through execution is unparalleled. It would be a pleasure to work with him again in any organization.
Dave is one of the most trusted professional friends and startup collaborators I’ve ever had. Dave’s courage, determination, and discipline cannot be understated. Without him, without his special contributions, no startup can drive through its greatest challenges. I am grateful for his partnership, authenticity, and the power of his will in my life. I could not endorse him more highly.
Dave is one of those rare leaders you get the opportunity to work for in your career. He has the unique ability to understand that it is all about the people. He was one of the most genuine leaders I have worked for.
Dave was the best partner an AM/AE could ever ask for. He has a knack for telling people things that they don't want to hear in a way that makes them happy. When hard questions would come up, Dave could answer them in a straight forward and honest answer that may not be what the client was looking for, but always ended up making the client happier and a tighter partner. Anybody who has ever worked with Dave, or been in a meeting with him knows that he is the bedrock that teams and companies are built upon. I would be proud to work with you again and hope to run into him in the marketplace soon.
I recently attended two Search Engine Marketing workshops that Dave hosted for my TAB clients and wanted to say how brilliant he was. I learned more useful information in the two meetings that Dave hosted than I have in a long time and have already strategized with some of my clients on how to put his best practices to work.
In addition to being extremely intelligent, Dave is also very engaging and has a unique way of keeping a 3 - 4 hour brainstorming meeting completely energized and full of good thought and conversation.
I give Dave my highest recommendation!
