Chief Operating Officer
As chief operating officer, Dave manages Diplomat’s operations to ensure operational excellence and high-quality patient care.
Dave previously served as Diplomat’s chief information officer, responsible for Diplomat’s information technology strategy, day-to-day IT operations, and product development. He has more than 25 years of experience in a variety of operations and IT roles, including more than 15 years in the specialty pharmacy space.
Before joining Diplomat, Dave served as CEO of 8th Day Software, which he founded in 2013 to meet a market need for a transparent, reliable, and cost-effective software vendor. Dave led the firm in developing technologies — including for patient engagement, reporting, and hub management — and providing IT outsourcing and consulting for healthcare companies.
He spent nearly a decade with Accredo, which joined Medco and is now Express Scripts’ specialty pharmacy — first as vice president of software development, then as chief information officer, and finally as vice president of business innovation. Before that, he served five years as senior director for Oracle Corporation, a multinational computer technology company.
Dave graduated from Waynesburg College with a bachelor’s degree in computer science.
