Dave develops creative solutions to business challenges for traditional and biofuels manufacturing companies. He guides family-run businesses in seizing opportunities and avoiding mishaps as they evolve and grow.

With deep knowledge of tax programs specific to manufacturers, Dave applies the 4 Horsemen of Manufacturing Incentives–training, investment, hiring, and R&D credits and other incentives. Dave applies concepts that impact businesses in big ways. Some recent examples:

  • Adding $1 million to the bottom line of an agriculture equipment manufacturer by taking advantage of available credits and incentives.
  • Increasing working capital by $7 million over seven years for a manufacturing business through applicable export incentives that had been overlooked.
  • Creating over half a million dollars in savings for a manufacturing company applying research and development credits the company was eligible for.

Born and raised in Wichita, Dave began his career in the chemical industry, but quickly became interested in the business finance side. Interested with how raw materials are transformed into products, he explored and developed mastery around the entire manufacturing lifecycle. This work is his passion.
