My kids come first. They are my #1 priority and nothing will ever get in the way of that. I have 3 awesome kids and we are blessed to be living in Frisco - amongst our family and friends and we enjoy all that the area has to offer.
I don’t ascribe to the belief that we can truly separate who we are from what we do provided we have found the thing we were meant to do. If you don’t love your job, you’re doing it wrong. I love what I do. It’s not without it’s challenges and trials but that’s also what motivates me. There’s a quote from Dr. J, “Being a professional is doing the things you love to do on the days you don’t feel like doing them.” and that’s how I feel about my work. In 2007 I discovered the folks at Improving and I’m so excited to see how far we have come and where we are going as a company. It’s truly different than any other company I’ve worked for.
As President of Improving, David O’Hara finds his joy in facilitating those around him to discover what they need to grow and achieve their best selves. Constantly working to evolve things to a better place, his diverse work and technology background has shown him that people are the hard part but are what truly matter most. By looking at the bigger picture and ecosystem for technology, solutions emerge that are better both from a business and technological perspective. His experience in going from early-stage startup to exit and beyond has given him a perspective on what it takes to create a great culture that is financially sound and sustainable. David enjoys paying forward all that has been invested in him through his speaking engagements and other opportunities to share and invest in others. He is also active in YPO Lone Star, both at a chapter and board level, and currently coaches for the Senior Leadership Initiative.
