After a career in the Data and Telecom industry, Dave joined his wife at Pugerudes in 2001. His responsibilities include installation, service calls, marketing and making sure we pay all the bills!! He is kind of a ‘jack of all trades’ around the shop – which is what happens when you are a small business owner, you have to wear lots of different hats all at the same time.
His favorite thing to hear from customers is “I Love It!” which he gets to hear upon completion of many of our jobs. Over the years, he has encountered lots of difficult and unusual situations for installing window treatments; including climbing up a 26’ scaffolding to install a skylight shade in a church sanctuary, having to hover over stairs to get at hard to reach windows and transporting product to a third story balcony because they were too big to get through doors or the elevators.
When not caught up in projects at work, Dave likes to stay fit with regular visits to the gym. He cherishes his time with his kids, even though they are busy establishing a life of their own. Hikes in the summer and snowshoeing in the winter are newfound joys.
