As a consultant to one of the top nutritional industry executives at the time, David had the opportunity to interface with the SDC team prior to coming on board as CEO, and in his own words: ‘…it was based upon my experiences working with the SDC team, seeing how they operated within their R&D and pricing process, how they managed timelines and production, the professionalism and eagerness to satisfy the customers needs, that I agreed to come on board as CEO. That made my decision easy.’  Under Davids direction since joining as CEO, SDC has been propelled into an exciting, new growth phase with significant business expansion, increased throughput and capacity, all while setting even higher standards for growth, performance, and service with this superior team of professionals.
