Dave Hartman, CEO, Hartman Executive Advisors

Sit with Dave for a few minutes and you’ll see the intersection of technology and business in a completely new way. To him, and to everyone at Hartman, technology is much more than server rooms and email – it’s a game-changer that delivers powerful business outcomes.

Dave and his wife, Marie, founded Hartman to transform executives’ long held, traditional views of IT and demonstrate how a technology-aligned business strategy is critical for long-term success. This pioneering approach still catches some by surprise; he continues to hear from executives that conversations with Hartman are often the first business discussions they’ve had that include technology.

During his eight years as a Naval Flight Officer, and in his early career in IT supporting the healthcare, commercial, retail, government and nonprofit industries, Dave developed strong leadership, analysis and execution skills. He’s also a dedicated collaborator and lifelong relationship builder, expertise he strengthened as an IT management consultant with Andersen Consulting, now Accenture. He uses all of these capabilities to lead the Hartman team as they cultivate trusted, long-term relationships and use their own insight and years of strategic IT leadership to change and transform organizations.
