David Paul

With almost a half decade in the industry, David is a valuable piece of the day to day sales for the company. Never thinking of sales as "customers", David always has the goal of building a long lasting partner relationship. It is with this goal that he has been able to help multiple large partners, and expand FSEC's business portfolio. 

When he's not at his desk, the recently retired professional soccer player, is usually kicking a soccer ball around the office...much to the dismay of the office staff.

Upon Graduating with my Bachelor's Degree in December of 2021, FSEC was the first company to interview and hire me! They took a chance on me and I haven't looked back since. Although my background was not in the Construction Industry, I have learned so much over the past two years working for FSEC. I am part of the Construction Financial Management Association, as well as the Young Construction Finance Professionals Chapter Committee. Through networking, webinars and courses offered by CFMA, I have been able to continue growing my knowledge in the industry to better serve and protect our employees, and company! I am passionate about helping others, and am proud to work for a company who prioritizes family and providing safety to our communities! I look forward to growing with FSEC and our employees for years to come!
