David Gertler, WG'98


David is currently serving on the Wharton Club’s board and he would like to serve for a second term. In addition to serving on this Board, David launched an alumni networking group over 20 years ago for another of his alma maters. He also serves on a board of a privately owned technology company based in the DC area and led a business networking platform as founder and CEO for 7 years. David has over 35 years experience in various leadership roles ranging from startups to Fortune 500 technology companies.

During his current tenure on our club’s Board, David has led several popular events, including our first pickleball session. He has hosted Wharton Professor Michael Useem’s leadership discussion and he currently hosts a monthly “Networking and…” Zoom session to help alums build stronger relationships with other alums and discuss interesting topics, like AI, using social media, and dealing with difficult employees. David also serves on the Events subcommittee.

David plans to expand opportunities for local alums to network, build deeper and more impactful business relationships and explore interesting topics for discussion if selected to serve another term on the club’s board.
