Dave started his electrical career as an apprentice, and after his first year the small company he worked for recommended he land a job at Royal. Dave has never looked back. From Journeyman, to Foreman, to Project Manager and now Regional Manager, Dave has used his technical skills and leadership to achieve success for his clients and the team around him.
Dave’s project experience has included both hard-bid and design-build for K-12 and higher education projects, industrial plants and facilities, performing arts theaters, airfields, federal installations and private development. He believes in working closely with Royal’s Chief Estimator, Paul Austin, to design successful outcomes for clients and their projects from the estimate phase to the closeout of construction. He is a true collaborator with our customers, helping to design solutions that improve schedule, cost and ultimate functionality of the project to meet the client’s needs.
In his role as Project Executive, Dave leads his team by focusing on creating an engaged and trained workforce, building relationships with all stakeholders, and building expertly designed and installed electrical systems. A student of leadership principles, he is committed to clear communication, team accountability and most importantly the development of those on his team. Dave has volunteered as a judge for the SRBX Education Foundation Design-Build competition between local high schools, judging entries on electrical criteria and coaching future builders. He’s a fan of the Seattle Seahawks, and enjoys hunting, fishing, and riding his adventure motorcycle when he isn’t spending time with his family.

Whatever your challenge there’s someone there to help you, from airports to commercial. I’ve never had to settle at Royal, and they’ve given me opportunities for career development and travel.”
