David Spencer
Senior Advisor

Mr. David Spencer is a 20-year veteran of the gourmet marketplace assisting in the successful launch of several European housewares brands in the United States. He then went on to found Housewaresdirect Inc. in 2010, the first b2b marketplace for gourmet specialty retailers, which he grew through acquisition to include additional marketplaces covering the specialty food, and gift vertical markets.

In 2010, a few months before the launch of the revolutionary iPad, David founded Gourmet Business, the first digital b2b media brand delivering content specifically optimized for consumption by specialty retailers in the gourmet space using the iPad or other web-connected and mobile devices. In 2012, David furthered the company’s digital publishing success story by introducing a second title, Gourmet Business Fine Cheese & Charcuterie, to extend the brand’s reach into the growing niche of upscale dairy and specialty meats. Mr. Spencer currently serves as publisher for these two ground-breaking digital publications, and has assembled a highly experience team of publishing and business professionals to continue to grow the brand to additional verticals.

David Spencer holds a BA with honors in Economics and Political Science from the University of Rochester and a Masters of Business Administration in Finance, Economics and Public Policy from the William E. Simon School of Business Administration.
