About David

One of my greatest desires in life has always been to team up with like-minded, committed and passionate people to accomplish a goal. Whether in business or coming together on a work project, I enjoy focusing as a team on what needs to be accomplished and then setting out to make it happen. With 30+ years working in a lean manufacturing environment, my career passion has been adapting IT solutions to empower business success. That is why I am so excited about the impacting businesses, freeing them for growth through technology.

About Amanda

As a founder of Open Path, what I enjoy most is understanding my clients. I have always been fascinated with observing people and their interactions with those around them. I strive to dig into who they are, how their business works and how they passionately care about meeting their customer's needs. Then by using colors, textures, very specific wording and visual designs, I create the digital marketing brand, website design, and social media campaigns that convey who they are to the world.
