To whom it may concern:

It has truly been an honor and privilege to serve with David H. Crean PhD at ACG San Diego over the past several years during my tenure as Executive Director. Presently our chapter’s current President, David formerly was our Chair of Marketing (2017-18) and Sponsorship (2018-19) Committees.

David masterfully demonstrates his management skills, leading with integrity and intelligence, empathy and candor. He is an excellent organizer and communicator, empowering his teammates to succeed without micromanaging, yielding positive results for the organization.

A highly respected and sought-after expert in the worlds of both Finance and LifeSciences, David deftly establishes genuine relationships and connections, whether with our most significant sponsors or prospective members, resulting in chapter growth year after year.

I wholeheartedly endorse David to any organization fortunate enough to engage him to lead.

Sincerely yours,

Judy Susser-Travis, CMP, CMM
