David J. McNeff is a thought leader, executive coach, high-profile jury trial consultant, profiling expert, workshop facilitator, author, and keynote speaker.
A former collegiate athlete fascinated with peak performance, Dave founded Peak Consulting Group in 1995 to develop executive talent and bolster performance of executive team dynamics for companies all over the world.
Dave was recognized for his outstanding sales achievements with several national awards unique to the financial services industry. He also built two successful sales companies that experienced rapid growth and achieved similar national recognition. In this capacity, Dave spent years working with the venture capital community participating in the growth of many emerging companies in the technology and internet industries.
Peak Consulting Group focuses on behavioral management consulting, sales training, CEO mentoring, and management team-building for mid to large corporations. Dave has an unusually close relationship with his clients where the engagement typically lasts for a number of years and includes work as a CEO coach and trusted adviser, as well as executive leadership team talent development. In each case, the relationship includes senior executives and an ongoing relationship with the CEO and/or BOD. Over the past several years, a significant amount of new business is coming out of private equity firms, where assessment and merger integration consulting is at a premium value.
In addition to his advisory/coaching work, Dave specializes in two other areas: corporate conflict resolution and litigation consulting. Conflict resolution work usually involves work in the M&A sector, and litigation consulting is primarily focused on jury selection and legal team management consulting, almost exclusively in the pharmaceutical sector. Dave is also a sought-after speaker for company and organization events. His style is engaging and very funny, which has led to many repeat events including hosting company annual meetings. Dave holds a B.A. from Providence College and an M.Ed. from Boston University. Dave still enjoys a regional USTA tennis ranking and remains very active in paddle tennis, and he is respectable on the golf course. He has three children who are all now safely launched and reside in LA, Chicago, and Boston.
