Dave Risha is a seasoned marketing executive working in the Government Services section since 1985. His career began following his tour of duty with the United States Air Force where he served as the lead rescuer on Space Shuttle operations and was named the Chief of Training at the Holloman, AFB fire department. Following his enlistment, he supported the safety operations at a top-secret radar research facility in New Mexico. It was here that he began writing proposals. He worked his way through the ranks quickly and was moved to the corporate office supporting successful proposals relating to four major contracts owned by DynCorp at the White Sands Missile Range. He managed and wrote technical, management, and cost volumes supporting these contracts and others within the company worldwide.
Dave wrote a winning proposal for an upstart where we became Vice President of Operations and Program Manager supporting the newly opened Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia, NM. From there, he has moved across the country writing winning proposals in areas of facilities maintenance, aircraft maintenance, ship building support, grounds maintenance, student support services, firearms and drivers training, role player services, food services, security guard services, information assurance and risk management framework, computer-based courseware, AR/VR courseware, and the design, development, and manufacturing of technically complex training devices deployed around the world. He has dedicated his professional career to writing winning proposals and his total wins are valued in the billions of dollars.
In addition to his full-time work supporting marketing, Dave has taken multiple proposal writing courses with his first dating back to the mid-1980s. Dave also reviews for DAU equivalency courses taught by government agencies, colleges and universities, public companies, and private firms. He recently retired and has enjoyed some needed time off to decompress from the deadline driven lifestyle he has maintained for the past 35 years. He is joined in retirement by his wife, Julie, of 42 years.
