BEN ILFELD, CO-FOUNDER, SACRAMENTOPRESS.COM —

“David is as curious and flexible as any journalist I’ve met. In our industry, with such rapid change, that is the highest compliment I can give. (David) helped grow the department to a staff of five, and they produced marvelous work that was well regarded among other independent local online publishers nationwide. He made our operations even more efficient and readership not only grew, but so did engagement levels in terms of comments, share actions and ratings. David was more than just a leader. In our young organization he was the soul of our operation. His voice was both his own and reflected that of the central city. I’m proud of what we built together and I hope someday to collaborate again.”
