David is committed to design that blends both creative and strategic considerations to produce innovative solutions that aren’t just spaces that clients inhabit – instead, they become facilitators of a clients’ business performance.With a background in investment banking and management consulting, he came to Gensler with wide-ranging experience in the healthcare, financial services and technology sectors with leading international corporations including Microsoft, Datis and Morgan Stanley. In 1994, he founded Gensler Information Solutions (GIS), a consultancy focused on information management strategies for real estate and facilities.
