DAVID SHAW, Vice-President
David Shaw’s career has revolved around his interests in health, communications and marketing. David is currently CEO/Founder of Quantum Health, a company that formulates and markets a portfolio of 40+ natural over-the-counter products carried by 35,000 leading drug, food and natural product retailers in the United States and Canada.
On a more personal level, David engages with his community through volunteerism, always bringing more than asked. While volunteering for the Santa Monica Museum of Art he saw that their marketing communication systems were technologically out of date and solved that by programming a new data base and creating an interface that automated their fax/email/response communications systems.
As a current Account Director for the Taproot Foundation, David assembles teams to deliver marketing tools to NPOs. In fact, his involvement with CFC began with his team’s work on the current Annual Report, in which took the lead as editorial and creative director. Other Taproot projects include a branding/key messages project for California Clean Money, and a new web site for Bet Tzedek.
