David has served as Chairman, CEO & President of CMGI since he effected a leveraged buyout of the company in 1986. After significantly enhancing the revenue and market share of CMGI, he took the company public in January of 1994. One month later, he founded BookLink Technologies, Inc., the first of what has turned out to be a family of Internet start-up companies. Ten months after the inception of BookLink, it was sold to America Online in a stock-based transaction, which ultimately was worth in excess of $70M to CMGI. David used the proceeds of this sale to fund a two-pronged strategy: the incubation of a series of start-up Internet companies, and the formation of @Ventures, a strategic investment and development affiliate. @Ventures invests in early-stage Internet and interactive media technology companies.

The CMGI portfolio of companies is assisted by David's vision and leadership in the Internet industry, both in the evaluation and execution of new investment and business development opportunities, and in leveraging the synergies inherent in their related businesses. Prior to CMGI David co-founded the software development firm Softrend, Inc., and he has held senior management positions in application software development and marketing management in the healthcare and transportation industries. David holds a BA in Mathematics and Education from Ohio Wesleyan University.
