Director of Research


David leads SASB’s team of sector analysts. The team is responsible for working with issuers, investors and other stakeholders in a rigorous research, analytics and consultation process to identify current and emerging financially material ESG risks and opportunities among 79 industries. Financially material ESG risks and opportunities, which the team defines in terms of industry-specific metrics, are designed to be low cost to issuers and help enable investors and issuers to make effective capital allocation decisions. This research supports the SASB Standards Board’s technical agenda and influences the content of the disclosure standards, advancing SASB’s core mission.


David has been an equity portfolio manager and research analyst for over twenty years, during which time he led the equity research departments of two multi-billion dollar AUM firms. He has researched, invested in and visited companies in nearly all sectors. This experience gives David a strong background to help the research team identify non-financial topics and metrics, which are material to investors, issuers and other stakeholders. David holds a BS in Applied Economics and Management from Cornell University, an MBA in Finance from Columbia University and is a Chartered Financial Analyst.
