“Davin and I worked together closely for the past 2.5 years. Davin was quick to jump in and really stood up and maintained a robust, well managed delivery program for Capital One’s primary acquisition channel (The Site).

It was clear from the start that Davin approached his recommendations to process improvements with deep expertise for the complexity of teams and how to scale a program that was inclusive of different functions. Aside from his support to engineering teams, one thing that stands out to me about Davin is his advocacy for tracking design request within our teams process and providing more visibility around the design teams work with our product and engineering partners.

Aside from Davin’s hard job skills, I found Davin to be a proactive teammate who cared deeply for his team and went above and beyond to build a fun and inclusive culture. Additionally, Davin is a humble teacher who went above and beyond to share knowledge and make sure everyone was in-the-loop and felt heard.” – Melissa Madrid

Director, Enterprise Experience Design @ Capital One

“Davin is one of those people that you will not likely forget after your first encounter. His energy, likeability and desire for excellence are characteristics I don’t think could be contained if he tried. He was already well established at Capital One before I joined the company and during our first meet and greet, I know he would be someone I could learn from. He was very easy to relate to as he is well spoken and has countless experiences to be shared.

Beyond his people skills, I’ve observed, learned and benefited from his contributions to Capital One. Davin’s work in process refinement, extending visibility, increasing communication and so many other things has positioned my teams and many others as the model the organization should follow. This work was not made successful simply by Davin making it available for others. He educated others, he gained buy in and he proved the value of the work he was doing. At the end of the day, his contributions made a difference and I know Davin will take this tenacity with him to make a difference elsewhere.

Davin IS the person you are looking for, all you have to do is meet him once!” – John Shacklette

Engineering Manager @ Capital One

“Davin is an excellent agile program and cultural leader. Davin created processes to scale our org and enabled smooth workflows amongst our platform teams. Davin’s superpower is shaping programs from what would otherwise be chaos. Davin led our quarterly broader team readouts and all the work that goes into making them successful. I know that Davin, having established a reputation for a well run ship, was coaching other programs. Davin also expertly managed to closure several org-level tight deadline requests from senior leadership. Further, Davin is a great person to work with. From Day 1 when I joined, Davin shared a wealth of onboarding best practices. Davin led with kindness and inclusion as well as soliciting and championing positive work culture norms for our teams. We and any business or engineering org are lucky to have Davin.”

William Liu

Product Owner @ Capital One

“Davin and I have worked in the same group in Tacit for over four years. In that time, I’ve never seen a more organized and disciplined co-worker. He has the ability to approach almost any form of chaos, either obvious or hidden, and immediately see what’s needed to bring the situation to heel and what’s more, to begin to implement impactful solutions, quickly. His direct reports were mentored and guided in their work and growth and his sense of humor and caring helped bind together a team no matter how anxious, angry or unsure they could be, at times. Got chaos? Davin’s your solution.”

Thomas Tinnes

Infrastructure & Reliability Specialist @ Tacit Knowledge

“He’s not just the director of delivery you want, he’s the director of delivery every business needs. During my tenure at Tacit Knowledge, Davin taught me a wealth of information in all aspects of software delivery to interpersonal communication tactics. He was always direct in how I could improve in addition to always being available for suggestions and answers whenever I had a question. He’s a true asset and any company would be lucky to have him on their team.”
