He has an uncanny way of coming up with business solutions that work, and his overall knowledge and understanding of business principles for success is exceptional.

Under Dave’s leadership, NUI raised a total of $7.3 million over the last four years. Included in the total is $1.4 million in One Student Scholarship funds, which grow nearly 3 times in annual giving to $430K in 2018. In addition, the $3M+ capital campaign for the Campus Center construction was completed and the Board of Trustees was established as the primary networking and development organization in the US with over 35 members presently. At Northrise University Dave has worked with NU leadership to improve financial reporting, develop and implement a recruiting/communication campaign, help implement new software for managing the recruiting program, and various other capacity-building projects. Dave was instrumental in helping to transition the original structure of the NU Board of Regents and worked with me and our legal advisors directly in establishing the Northrise University Trust Deed, and reviewing the Northrise University Statutes. It is difficult to find the proper words to express our appreciation of the contributions of Dave Murray.

I highly recommend Dave for his superior knowledge of financial strategy and operational analysis. Dave's broad professional background and experience adds phenomenal value to an organization's leadership at the highest level. I've also been impressed with Dave's humility as I've also seen him kindly take the time to help small, local business owners make better financial choices during the start-up phase. He cares deeply for the success of those around him. He is always a wise and skilled advisor but is also the essential team player. Any organization will be better for having Dave Murray involved in their decision making and growth process.
