Dave Vernon thrives on all aspects of the acquisition and disposition of small and medium businesses from the due diligence process through the structuring and closing of the transaction. Prior to First Choice, Dave was an accomplished corporate executive and entrepreneur, with a strong background in retail management and business ownership. His extensive experience of 40 years has paved the way for many successes, including his most recent: the acquisition of a distribution business that doubled in size before its successful sale. He has been involved in numerous industries, with a primary focus in home goods and packaging products. He is comfortable working with employees of all levels of a corporation and has mentored and motivated numerous young executives.
“The customer experience” has been a pivotal guiding force in all his business ventures. Early in his career, a mentor and supervisor once told him, “If you take care of the customer, everything else finds a way to working itself out.” These words have influenced and shaped many of the decisions he’s made throughout his career.
Dave currently lives in South Florida with his wife, Dolores. He is the proud father of two children, Mike and Michelle, and a recent grandson, Hunter. He’s an avid outdoorsman and enjoys walking, biking, kayaking, SUP, hiking, skiing and more.
