David spent almost 30 years in diverse roles at Rogers Communications. He started in Finance in 1990 and became VP of Investor Relations and Financial planning in the mid-90’s. David transitioned to Rogers Wireless in 2000, just as the Company adopted GSM technology. In that role David authored the original business plan for the new mobile data network, and worked on many of the earliest mobile browser, Blackberry, iPhone and IOT projects. In 2004 he conceived of and founded the Inukshuk JV with Bell Canada, which built and operated a shared fixed-wireless network.
In 2005 David co-founded Enstream with Bell and TELUS, into which Rogers sold the Suretap Mobile wallet, a mobile payment service developed at Rogers that was years ahead of ‘the pays’ we are familiar with today. The concept of banking on a smartphone was so appealing to David that he developed a plan for Rogers to become a national bank itself. In 2015 David became the President and CEO of the Bank he founded. When David exited Rogers in 2019 Rogers Bank was Canada’s fastest growing Bank by assets.
David is the Chief Commercial Officer of Clik2pay and is currently pursuing his ICD.D designation.
