Dubbed by Elliot as a modern-day renaissance man, David Spisak, President and CEO of Disruptive Growth Solutions, LLC sure has the resume to prove it.

He didn’t go to college, but his desire to hustle and see results propelled him to reach success in his endeavors. David’s expertise is apparent throughout his nearly 40-year career – he’s served as a dealership operator where he achieved $29 million in annual net profit. He's created new software solutions, served on the board of multiple companies and is an advisor/consultant to dealerships and technology solution providers. David also co-founded Reverse Risk, a reporting solution that allows dealers to achieve high performance (and it later became the #1 reporting solution in the industry!).
