Every once in a while you’ll be fortunate enough to meet someone whose philosophy is “My word is my bond.” There’s a certain attitude that goes along with that philosophy that guarantees their commitment is money in the bank.

So it is with Dave Duval, Principal at Claiborne Advisors and an expert in assisting middle-market companies with mergers and acquisitions and institutional growth capital needs in the $5-$50 million range.

Dave has also been a driving force at Chairmen’s RoundTable since 2001. He’s kept his focus on manufacturing, distribution, and service companies, delivering Wall Street partner-level expertise to both private and public companies typically seen as too small to receive appropriate attention from larger investment banks.

Years of experience in crafting successful transactions allows Dave to create unique solutions to often difficult, complex needs. He gladly shares the wisdom gained from an incredibly successful career with San Diego’s entrepreneurs who recognize it as their best opportunity to grow their companies.

“I love working with the best collection of mentors in southern California,” Dave says, noting “This is the most experienced and diverse group of business executives I’ve ever witnessed. Every one of them is willing to take time every month from their busy schedules, offering high-level management consulting and mentoring to coachable CEOs.”

“And the best part is it’s all FREE!”

Dave’s one of those guys who approach each day as an opportunity to learn something, and his involvement with CRT is no different. No wonder he sees every conversation and meeting as the equivalent of a business school case study.
