Anca Pintille – Head of Central Communications Team – EMEA & APAC at Oracle
I’ve worked with David for around one year now and it’s been a pleasure. He has a deep understanding of brand strategy, a passion for social media and a contagious enthusiasm for anything employer branding related.
His campaign briefs are clear and structured, his approach positive and supportive.
I’d happily work with/for David in the future again.
He rocks! (he literally rocks, guitar and all:)
Aarti Kumar – Campus Recruiter
My manager, my guru… David has been an amazing, extremely professional manager to have worked with during my time as a campus Recruiter at Oracle. My experiences working with him on different projects for university hiring have been of tremendous learning where he’s always made me feel that I can achieve and do more than I may have imagined. He’s a perfectionist at his work and generously compliments and appreciates you on your stellar performance. What I’ve learnt and become as a Recruiter while working with David is what’s brought me to the next level of my career.
So David, I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to you and if there’s ever an opportunity to work with you again; I’d absolutely love it!!!
Mrinal Das – University Relations and Graduate Program Head | CGI India
It gives me immense pleasure to write about David after working with him for ~2.5 years during my stint at Oracle. David still remains my inspiration, mentor and guide. To summarize about David in one sentence (tough task though) – he is the Next Generation Recruitment Leader who believes in “Change is constant and Innovation is the key”. A very, very compassionate manager who trust his team, gives liberty and equal opportunity to all and tells “sky’s the limit”!
Keep doing the great work, David. Wish you all the success!

David is a force to be reckoned with. His philosophy on recruiters is amazing and such a breath of fresh air. He believes that sourcing is a specialty and does it so well. From social media, to networking to understand the candidate market to speaking about it, his focus on achieving the best for his client in the quickest of time frames is always number one on his agenda.
He is a true strategist and always lines up the outcome before he even commences the project. I love working with Dave, he tests us, partners with us and is an ideal client to have. (June 10, 2011, Andrea was a consultant or contractor to David at Oracle Corporation)
