David studied economics in college and started working immediately after for J.P. Morgan Chase, managing to push his way up the ranks. But even though he was showing promise, David realized that Corporate America wasn’t for him. A former colleague had moved on to work at Braintree, and seeing how happy she was, David knew he needed to make the shift as well.
David spends his time assessing the many business applications for Braintree merchant accounts. His team is responsible for accepting or rejecting businesses based on the merchant's business model and financial profile. David sees all different kinds of business models—from the ridiculous to the genius—and assesses whether they qualify for a Braintree account.
