As part of his responsibilities, he works closely with Capital One’s Auto Finance and Home Loans businesses in delivering on its Digital and Business Transformation agenda. David also works broadly across Capital One, interfacing with Corporate Strategy, Enterprise Services, and Corporate Development to define the implications of broader Capital One strategic initiatives on Financial Services, helping shape the division’s strategy for growth by evaluating investments, acquisitions, and new asset classes/partnerships for Capital One.

Prior to joining Capital One, David served for 10 years as a consultant with McKinsey & Company, where he was most recently an Associate Partner. During his tenure at McKinsey, David worked with Air, Travel, and Transportation clients across six continents through business turnarounds, post-merger integrations, sales and channel strategy development, and digital transformations, working closely with McKinsey Digital Labs to deliver digital solutions and introduce Agile to his clients.
