Since knowing David, a few words pop into mind immediately. Authentic, Passionate, and Leader! When I had the opportunity to see him speak, it was evident that he was truly excited and passionate about helping others succeed and sharing his expertise. His energy is contagious on his weekly radio show "Auto Dealer Live." If you haven't had the opportunity to work with or meet David yet, then you should!

He is intense in his pursuit of perfection and delivering products that optimize the success of his clients.
David is great leader to his team and in the automotive/marketing industry. A man of integrity and a man of discipline, he takes his business and yours seriously.

I have had a front row seat not only when David speaks or writes but when he has been in action as a CEO, leader, and most impressively in the trenches with his team. Thank you David for allowing all of us to walk away better after reading “Lead or Be Lunch”.
David Villa is tremendous, and a great man with high integrity.
