“I have known Dave Futch for many years,” says Mark Phipps. “I find him to be one of the most highly motivated, creative and enthusiastic individuals I’ve ever had the pleasure to associate with. Whatever task he takes on, he pursues it with all his energy. Dave has a refreshingly personal touch that is hard to find in today’s marketplace. His people skills and sales skills leave everyone involved feeling like a winner.”
