Chairman of the Board & CEO
After studying Business Administration at UNC Charlotte, Dave joined the family business in 1980. Initially he was responsible for manufacturing and field service activities. In 1992 he transitioned to managing JMS engineering and projects. Dave became the President of JMS in 2005 with responsibilities of overseeing all departments. He now serves as Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer at JMS and is an active member of WEF, AWWA, WWEMA (Water and Wastewater Equipment Manufacturers Association), and CEMA (Conveyor Equipment Manufacturers Association). During his tenure, JMS has grown to be a nationally recognized designer and manufacturer of Municipal Water and Wastewater Treatment Equipment. When he is not active at JMS, Dave can be found at Lake Norman either on the shore or on the water. Whether on a three-hour boat cruise or a quick jet ski ride with his dog, Duck, Dave finds relaxation on the lake. Recent volunteer activities with the NC Wildlife commission has sparked a new interest that may become more prevalent during retirement.
