Kyle David, Chief Executive Officer
Kyle David has been a lifelong entrepreneur and leading expert in the IT industry. At the age of 14, a young Mr. David was able to dazzle the management of a multi-million dollar Philadelphia-area IT firm and upgraded his employment from a paperboy to a staff consultant. In short time, he was working with clients from major banks, to Fortune 50 companies, and university hospitals.
In the years to follow, Mr. David formed two separate Internet ventures, growing them both to profitability, during a period when few internet companies had found the method to achieve revenue growth. An early adopter to the concept of affiliate marketing, Mr. David pioneered the idea of “price scraping,” which offered customers the ability to search for the best price among competitors, an unheard of concept in the mid-90s. Over the course of two years, he partnered with some of the largest online retailers at the time including eToys, Amazon, and CDNOW.
In 2002 he formed The Kyle David Group. The Kyle David Group has matured significantly from a one-man show, to an organization with offices in the Lehigh Valley, PA, Washington, DC. Mr. David still plays a significant role in the operation and development of the company by helping to set the standard in efficiency and productivity. During his tenure as CEO, he has been at the helm of a company that has grown at a staggering pace, developing business both domestically and internationally.
Along the way, he has won power-attorney Robert Shapiro’s LegalZoom Entrepreneur Spotlight Award for outstanding business conduct and integrity. He was also recognized as one of the top 20 business leaders under the age of 40 by the Eastern Pennsylvania Business Journal. In 2008, he was honored by becoming a finalist for candidacy of NBC’s The Apprentice where Donald Trump declared him to be, “the real deal.” He is a regular speaker domestically and internationally on topics ranging from search marketing to creative problem solving.
In addition to The Kyle David Group, Mr. David is the chairman of Kyle David Capital, a self-founded private equity firm with businesses in: insurance, retail, healthcare, and advertising. The firm’s portfolio companies continue to perform well despite the lagging economy, and Mr. David has proven his ability to increase revenue for acquisitions and increase the value of online ventures and underlying securities.
While not working with computers, Kyle David received a B.A. from Muhlenberg College in three years. He holds a Strategic Management certificate from Cornell University and is currently pursuing a Juris Doctorate, though he admits he’s on the “decade plan” for receiving a diploma. He is an avid triathlete and competes in regional and national races. He resides in Allentown, PA where he is on the pastoral care visitation staff at Lehigh Valley Hospital and is active at Christ Lutheran Church.
