Dave Guernsey Director, Business Development
Don't let the "calm voice of reason" fool you - Dave means business! In addition to bringing years of experience and a get-it-done, realist attitude to the organization, Dave heads up business development for PeerAspect. He is perhaps best known for pioneering sustainability reporting for the transportation industry and, as the "Father of Sustainability at UPS" played a large role in making UPS a leader in corporate responsibility and reporting. After 34 years and retirement, he was too excited by the chance to help Sheets grow into the world's leading data collection platform to sit back and watch, so joined PeerAspect to make it happen.
