JOIN THE MOVEMENT

OF GOD IN THE MARKETPLACE

Dave Shoemaker

Managing Chair

Dave comes to his role as C12 Area Chair in greater Philadelphia having lived for most of his life in the area.  He has led multi-national technology companies for more than 30 years.  Focused mainly on sales and marketing, Dave has helped firms drive their value to a market leadership position, launch new concepts, unite organizations in the wake of mergers, and fine-tune their sales process/approach to capitalize on value offered.  The advice he offers is based on real-world experience from all aspects of life recognizing that everything affecting you potentially impacts your performance.  One of the great joys of Dave’s career has been in helping others discover the promise of the following value formula:  Do the next right thing, place the other person’s desires ahead of your own, and make them proud to refer you to their friends.

Dave and Sherry, his sweetheart of 34 years, live in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania.  They are immensely proud of their two adult children, Jason and Jessica, as well as their daughter-in-law, Marsha.  The Shoemaker’s enjoy worshipping at LCBC Church.  Dave has served for 10 years on the Board of Trustees at Christ’s Home, a wonderful organization serving disadvantaged children and those advanced in their years.

David Bowman

Chair

David Bowman was born and raised in rural southeastern Pennsylvania, 50 miles northwest of Philadelphia. Born the son of a German tool-and-die maker, David began his business career as a management trainee after graduating from college. He spent nine years gaining practical business experience in a unionized environment learning machining, gray iron casting, and custom machine building. Traveling throughout the USA and internationally (Canada,, Mexico, Middle East, Europe, and Asia) gave him a love for production and customer face-to-face interaction. David developed hands-on leadership skills in the positions of plant manager, general manager, director of global resources, vice president of operations, treasurer, vice president of finance & operations, and president in the manufacturing, service, and logistics industries. These responsibilities have given him solid exposure to all functional aspects of running a business.

David has served as Chairman for the Keystone District and on the board of the Cradle of Liberty Council for Boy Scouts of America He also served on the Board of the Tri County Chamber of Commerce (Montgomery, Chester, and Berks Counties). David and wife Nancy have served in both independent Bible and Baptist churches and have enjoyed making multiple mission trips. David has served as a church trustee, elder, deacon, and on multiple committees. He currently serves on the Keystone Christian Education Scholarship Committee, which administers the distribution of funds through the Pennsylvania earned income tax credit program. During business trips, David has had the opportunity to visit and encourage missionaries in Asia, Europe, and North America.

David’s business philosophy is that leaders of small-to-medium-sized businesses must often accomplish great things with limited resources. Adapting to challenging current circumstances while preparing for the future provides us with an understanding of the importance of flexibility and resilience. Our people are our greatest asset. We lead by example and at the same time learn from our people. Communication is essential, and relating well to both workers and board members will enable enduring progress. When our employees realize that we don’t profess to have all the answers, but are willing to work through any challenges while encouraging active participation by others, we benefit and grow together. David is grateful to be part of the body of Christ and called to help business leaders actively serve others through the marketplace.
