I started in the industry in 1999, at Expeditors International as an entry writer and have advanced myself over the years working for other Customs Brokers such as UTI, Cargo Partner International, CEVA and now Western Overseas. I have experience with overseeing operations in the U.S and Canada and understanding the rules and regulation within those countries.   I have experience in managing several branches to ensure operational excellence, finances, Customs Regulation, duty drawback, compliance, and uniformity within each branch.

Currently I am the VP of Regulatory Compliance at Western Overseas and oversee all of the compliance for the company.  I am also involved with overseeing the operations for majority of the branches from a P&L perspective. 

I am looking to become more involved with local and national associations to become more instrumental and participate within the industry.

David has been an attorney practicing in the area of international trade and customs law for over 25 years. As an associate, then partner at Barnes, Richardson & Colburn David has presented countless education seminars to CCBFA membership. This continues a 50-year relationship between the CCBFA and Barnes/Richardson, stretching back to the 1970s.

In 2017 David became a licensed Customs broker through the Port of Chicago. He utilizes his broker’s license through Barnes Global Trade, which is a wholly-owned customs brokerage and consulting firm.

I would like to continue volunteering with the CCBFA because I have seen the very good work the group has done over the years. Continuing to provide a local outlet for the field to interact with the agencies, recruit new talent, and provide educational opportunities are all vital activities. I would like to do my part in continuing those efforts.
