David joined the U.S. Navy in 1988 and began his military career as a Photographers Mate, serving aboard the USS Fulton (AS-11) and USS Forrestal (CV-59). He earned the designation of Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist, sailed on two Mediterranean cruises and was involved in Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. His shore tours included working at the Naval Explosive Ordnance and Disposal School and Naval Explosive Ordnance and Disposal Technical Division where he served as the Leading Petty Officer for the Public Affairs Office. David then decided to change career paths and completed his last 13 years as part of the Career Recruiting Force as a Navy Counselor. He served as a Recruiter-in-Charge for five additional assignments with tours at Andrews Air Force Base, Md., NAS Patuxent River, Md., Adelphi, Md., Augusta, Ga., and Anacostia, D.C. A few of his significant accomplishments include: Area Southeast's Small Station of the Year and Intelligence Recruiter of the Year.
Upon retirement, David came to Lockheed Martin as a Senior Employment Representative in June 2009. Shortly thereafter, he assumed the position as one of our Military Relations Managers until April 2013 when he accepted his current position. David is based in Arlington, Va., and acts as Project Leader for activities involved in veteran outreach, hiring and cross-functional enterprise support. He holds an M.B.A. with a concentration in Human Resource Management from Trident University International.
