Chief Executive Officer
In 2005, David co-founded Four Winds Interactive (now Poppulo) with a vision for how digital media applications could improve the way businesses communicate and engage with their customers and employees.
After growing the company to more than $65M in revenue without any major outside investment, in 2019 FWI took a majority investment from Vista Equity Partners to fuel its next round of growth.
In 2021, FWI acquired workplace management innovator SmartSpace and the employee communications leader Poppulo. The three companies combined under the Poppulo name, supported by a unified brand, vision, and product suite as the leading communications and workplace experience software company. Poppulo’s 6,000+ customer base is an A-list of the world’s most successful companies, including 47 of the Fortune 100.
David has previously been recognized by ForbesMagazine’s list of most promising CEO’s under 35. Prior to Poppulo, David co-founded Sage Circle, a software and consulting services firm focused on Industry Analyst Relations, and was an Associate at Denver-based venture capital firm, Cornerstone Ventures.
