MEET THE TEAM
Most people know that a company is only as good as its people, and we feel pretty lucky! The eSpeakers’ team is the perfect blend of innovative thinking, strategic vision, technical wizardry and customer service.
Co-founder, Partner & Chief Technology Officer
As one of the original founders of eSpeakers over 19 years ago, Dave leads the technology team as VP. He continues to focus on how technology can bring real business value to the speaking and meetings industry. Dave’s leadership has resulted in eSpeakers becoming the dominant provider in the industry. When Dave is not in the office, you may pass him running on the local roads, on the river in his canoe or with his family traveling the world. Dave is an expert in chocolate cake, donuts and southern cooking. Make sure you ask him about his Top 5 Best Chocolate cakes list.
Partner & Chief Marketing Officer
Joe leads the sales and marketing team at eSpeakers. With over 16 years in the speaking and meetings industry, Joe’s strategic vision and leadership has propelled eSpeakers forward as the leading software provider in the industry. He has a passion for all sports, most especially football. When he’s not in the office, you can find him coaching his sons in whatever sport is in season, or spending time outdoors with his family. While he’s never been considered the smartest, funniest or handsomest person in the room, Joe has nonetheless been in the room. And his grandmother assures him that this is half the battle.

Marketplace Sales Manager
Roxy is a sales rock star! All she does is sell, sell, sell. The good thing about all of this is that she gets results, and her clients love her. Roxy has been selling most of her life. At age ten, she sold her brother’s favorite skateboard to a friend for her first sale. Then she had to figure out how to tell her brother . . . that didn’t go so well. Roxy started her career off by selling fitness memberships, which led to her passion for eating clean and staying fit. Roxy prides herself on her endurance when it comes to Netflix marathons and gaming with her son on Xbox. Ask her about her passion for boating; she’s got some crazy stories.
