David McBride is the Director of Business Development at BBSI (Barrett Business Services, Inc., NASDAQ: BBSI). BBSI is one of the largest providers of business management solutions nationwide, helping businesses of all sizes grow revenue, increase efficiency, mitigate risk, and scale profitability.
As the lead contact for new business for BBSI during the past five years, David has built a book of business consisting of 125 active clients, with a total of almost 4,000 worksite employees, totaling gross annual revenues to BBSI of over $135 million.
David admits he is rarely the smartest person in the room but is usually the most curious. He’s very interested in what you do, how you got there, and where you are going.
Aside from work, David and his wife of 34 years, Christi, are real estate investors and grandparents to two young grandsons. They have lived in Ventura County for 24 years and in their off time are usually in shorts and flipflops. They enjoy hiking, exercise, Christian ministry and are blessed to have many good and close friends.
A favorite quote of David’s is from Winston Churchill, “If two people agree on everything, one of them is unnecessary.”
Jeremy Leach started his first company with his wife Vikki in Albuquerque NM, while attending the University of New Mexico. After graduating, they sold that company to fund their move back to Southern California where they were both born and raised. Upon their return, Jeremy began building his career in the movie and television industry, addressing the needs of pre-production through post-production.
In 1997, Jeremy started Vision QC, a postproduction quality control company, and grew it to a team of over 40 consultants servicing all the major production studios. In 2012 while working with the studios, he noticed a need for production equipment rentals and started the CFG Rental Group. While purchasing equipment for CFG, he began working with a manufacturing company that made the best grip and rigging equipment in the industry but was unable to satisfy market demand. In 2015, Jeremy sold CFG and purchased Modern Studio Equipment to increase production to match their demand. Since the purchase, Modern's sales have tripled and continue to climb.
Jeremy attributes his desire and ability to lead to his career as a quarterback in football. In high school, he was named the 1987 Los Angeles 4A City Football Player of the Year after leading Granada Hills to the City Championship over Carson, who was ranked second in the nation by USA Today. As a four-year starter at QB for the University of New Mexico, he finished as the 10th all-time leading passer in NCAA history.
Back in 1981 (when pagers were still popular), California native Tom Squier’s career in the solar thermal industry started with commercial solar and new construction plumbing projects (anything that paid the bills). In 1995, he started moving up the ranks when he was named Service Manager for a Teledyne Laars Heating representative company (who we still work closely with today).
In 2001, Tom launched his own boiler service company, Pacific Energy Service (PESI) with the mission of creating a company with generational change for its employees. He studied entrepreneurial leadership at Babson College (Go Beavers) which helped prepare him to manage his company from Texas.
Tom holds contracting licenses in Solar (C-46), Plumbing (C-36) and Boilers and Pressure Vessels (C-4). He has provided instructional trade classes for PHCC, NAHB, and SEIA in Solar and Boiler Technology and has had articles published in various trade publications. His greatest accomplishment is his marriage of 31 years and his 2 daughters (dad jokes for days).
