Finance is David’s game. As Mojio’s CFO, he also oversees operations, admin, HR, and governance, as well as participating in business strategy. Prior to Mojio, David was a partner in the Vancouver-based investment bank, Stirling Mercantile, focusing on M&A, debt and equity financings, and venture financings for early-stage software companies. David was also a founding independent board member and chair of the investment committee for BC Advantage Funds, a Vancouver VC focusing on Life Science and IT, winner of the Canadian Venture Capital Association “Deal of the Year” in 2006. He has been a mentor and judge for New Ventures BC since its inception in 2001, advising a number of early stage software companies.

David has 30 years worth of sailing experience, having won every Vancouver based race at least once, including the Victoria to Maui international regatta. He’s sailed to Hawaii twice and back once, chaired the Vancouver Area Racing Council for a couple of high growth years and founded the False Creek Racing program. David has represented Canada in both rowing and rugby and paid his way through university by teaching water skiing in Ontario. He believes that his biggest accomplishment is his lovely daughters, but admits his wife probably had more influence in that.
