His publishing clients include Harvard Business Review Press, McGraw Hill, Crown Business Books, Wiley, Portfolio Books, St. Martins Press, HarperCollins, Putnam Publishing Group, Zondervan Publishing, Thomas Nelson, Baker Book House,  and Berrett Koehler.

Named Managing Director of MEDIA CONNECT (a division of Finn Partners) in 2007, David now oversees all the agency’s operations including full service Book Publicity Campaigns, Satellite TV Tours, Morning Drive Radio Tours, Celebrity Matching Service, Corporate Media Tours, and Online Marketing Services.   He also continues to oversee MC’s award-winning Business Book division.

David joined MEDIA CONNECT (originally Planned TV Arts) in 1986 after working at The Putnam Publishing Group in the early 80's in their marketing department.

An avid soccer fan he enjoys travel, gardening, tennis, and as much reading as he can squeeze in alongside the MEDIA CONNECT books! An alumnus of Swarthmore College and New York University with a B.A. in English Literature, David lives in Nyack, New York and has five wonderful adult children: Emily, Jamie, Christian, Jocelyn and Alex.



It takes more than luck and word of mouth to keep a book on top of the bestseller list... it takes vision, planning and a dynamic promotional campaign. Planned Television Arts combines professionalism, experience and market knowledge to provide me with the opportunity to reach millions of people each year through print and radio media. I give PTA my highest recommendation.
