Creating Sustainable Results

David Gallimore founded Ventura Project Group (VPG) in July, 2003 to provide leadership coaching and management consulting to Seattle area startups, helping leaders accelerate their great ideas into market-driven products and services. Today, David applies the same proven methods that work in small to mid-market businesses to unleash the entrepreneurial spirit in larger organizations through innovative programs. He helps leaders and teams work better together to create and grow innovative, meaningful, profitable, and sustainable businesses.

A Seattle native, avid sailboat racer, Yale and UW graduate, David leverages his years of experience as an entrepreneur, business/technology innovator, and program/product/project manager. David has helped many of Northwest's premier business/technology companies grow, including Boeing, IBM, T-Mobile, Unify Consulting, and Wall Data.
