David has over 40 years of business experience as the former CEO of Reebok athletic brand and Dollar General stores, where he created thousands of quality jobs and helped working families make it from payday to payday. David was born in Macon, Georgia, and raised in Warner Robins where he grew up working on his family farm. Both of David’s parents were school teachers, and from an early age David was taught the importance of hard work and a good education. At Georgia Tech, David earned a degree in industrial engineering and a master’s in operations research while working warehouse and construction jobs. After graduating, he married his wife Bonnie, whom he had met in the first grade, and they have been married for 46 years.
