David Hain

Mr. Hain is a highly energetic and successful business leader with diverse experience driving profitable growth in challenging, competitive, and volatile customer markets. A key strength of his firm is the ability to allow clients to leverage existing investments in intellectual property, technology and channels of distribution into rapid, profitable, and sustainable growth in new or existing markets. Most clients are not yet in a position to invest heavily in the infrastructure required to fully engage an internal business development function. Gotham Growth functions as the clients' Business/Corporate Development unit. In return, the client gets access to an accomplished senior executive able to quickly have an impact and drive results. The client also spends less time building and more time analyzing and closing opportunities.
