Executive Bio History

Dave Briskie, CEO

Dave’s drive to excel was apparent early as he received many high school accolades including the coveted Paul DeLorenzo scholar-athlete award and in 1983 graduated magna cum laude from Fordham University with a double major in marketing and finance. He is the proud father of two talented daughters who currently attend universities in North Carolina.

Beginning in 2007, Dave accepted the position of CEO of Javalution Coffee Company (JavaFit). He is energized to bring to JavaFit the experience he has garnered from an exciting and rewarding 18-year career with Drew Pearson Marketing, Inc. (DPM). Four years after he took over the sales effort, DPM’s growth rate was phenomenal, reaching $30 million in sales. During this time, The Dallas100 recognized and honored DPM as the 2nd fastest growing privately held entrepreneurial company. By 1996, DPM’s sales reached $70 million dollars and now have offices in Dallas, New York, Hong Kong and Minnesota. Dave’s team introduced the Drew Pearson brand to 15 European countries, Canada, Mexico, Latin America and Asia. Named CEO of both DPM and DPI in 1996, he is credited with negotiating multi-million dollar contracts and building relationships with a multitude of fortune 1000 companies including, Disney, Warner Bros, NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, all major universities, Anheiser Bush and General Motors. In 2001, Dave orchestrated a merger of DPM and DPI with its key manufacturing partner, Mainland Headwear, and the merged company was taken public on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. As part of the merger, Dave executed a 5 year employment contract, was a director of the Hong Kong Corporation, and remained as CEO of Drew Pearson Marketing through the conclusion of his agreement. Priding himself on building an amazing team that drove DPM and DPI to meet its lofty goals, Dave’s passion is building businesses from start up, and stands ready to build another strong brand and profitable company with JavaFit
