Seasoned investment banker/advisor to leading closely-held companies, their owners and boards. Trained at Wall Street’s largest firms, David and his firm have completed over 130 assignments since 1993, specializing in the growth and sale of great private companies.
From Upstate NY, VT, and NYC — via Middlebury College and Columbia Univ. Grad. School of Business (where he delivered the valedictory address on behalf of his class) — David is about brains, heart, relationships and results, as manifest in the four pillars of his professional activities: David N. Deutsch & Company (leading NY-based M&A firm); TheBoardAdvisor (advising private company owners and boards); The Presidents Council (consortium of CEOs, Wall Street execs and family offices who meet quarterly and invest together); and Camp David (an August weekend of “business-and-broader”TM discussion and camaraderie among business leaders, capital providers, journalists, government officials and others held in Saratoga Springs NY).
David is currently a Board member and Treasurer of the Biomedical Research Alliance of NY (the for-profit nexus of NYC’s leading academic medical centers), SummerTech (the nation’s preeminent technology camp for children) and advises the Boards of the world’s leading digital search agency and one of the nation’s leading EHS service providers, among others. In the not-for-profit realm, David was a Founding Trustee of The Museum of American Finance in affil. with the Smithsonian Inst. and served on the Board of Earth Day Network (the Washington DC-based center of all global Earth Day activities).
When he’s not advising clients, David does triathlons, Krav Maga (the self-defense system of the Israel Defense Forces) and is a single Dad to three above-average children. David speaks English and the language of closely-held and family enterprise, with a “soft spot” for those in Upstate NY.
