When branded as nine72 Studios, Dave engaged in the largest marketing campaign of his career.
An international campaign for a new concept in the home building industry. The goal of taking it to market, grow the adoption rate and increase revenue for the parent company.
This campaign included trade shows both in the US and in Europe, sole sponsorship of a Hendrix Motor-sport NASCAR for a the 2000 season (Oh we won the NAPA 500 that year.) and co-sponsor with the US Coast Gard the following season. At the end of 18 months, the adoption rate rose from 30% of major US home builders to almost 70%; as well as almost all major building material suppliers in over 1,000 cities. This pushed an increase in the over all revenue of the company from $250 million a year to $790 million. The end result was the purchase of the company for $1.6 billion 9 months later.
