Meet Our Team - Dave
The ‘Meet Our Team’ blog series is a way to introduce the interesting and unique members of our team here at Regal. We love getting to know our franchisees and in turn, we’d love for you to get to know us as well!
What is your position? Chief Financial Officer
Where are you from? Baton Rouge, LA
Tell us a little bit about yourself. I have 3 sons, one in his 1st year of med school, 1 just graduating this month from LSU and 1 in his freshman year at LSU. We are all ridiculously avid LSU sports fanatics. I have two degrees from LSU and taught at LSU part-time for 30 years. Geaux Tigers! I love all sports, but golf is my favorite.
How long have you been with Regal? I am in my 15th year at Regal.
Describe a typical day in your role. I manage the accounting and tax function; so my day may be spent preparing tax returns, reviewing accounting transactions, and problem solving.
What is your favorite part about your job? Easily the people at Regal. I consider them to be my family and they have always treated me like family.
What is your proudest moment from working for Regal (so far)? It’s difficult to say there was one specific moment, but the growth of Regal from when I joined in 2003 to now has been amazing and very satisfying.
What is one word that you would use to describe your Regal co-workers? One word is impossible; can I use three? Professional, effective, and friendly.
What fictional place would you like to visit? Is there a golf heaven somewhere? Let me go there and play a round of golf with Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, and Gary Player.
What would you like to be known for? Personally: kind-hearted and dependable. Professionally: hard working and reliable.
What’s the weirdest item on your desk? Two miniature replicas of the crystal footballs awarded to LSU for winning the 2003 and 2007 national championships.
If you could have any superpower, what would it be? Definitely the ability to fly. I would love to be able to fly anywhere on the spur of the moment.
Share a personal fact no one would ever guess about you. Hmmm, I am very athletic.
Anything else you would like to add? Regal a great place to work and Regal Nails is a fantastic franchising opportunity for those interested in a career in the nail salon industry.
