AccessCMO’s Founder is David Weaver, a strategic planner, a relentless self-experimenter, provocateur, long-time TEDster, and...according to many, "a darn nice guy."


Realizing a more contemporary and cost-effective solution in today’s marketplace was needed, David founded AccessCMO with an eye towards giving startups and growing companies a better solution to their increasing marketing needs.


A native Iowan, and a 30-plus year advertising and marketing veteran, David has conceived and implemented marketing programs and advertising campaigns that have done more than win gold EFFIEs for effectiveness and a Cannes Gold Lion for creativity, but also differentiated companies in ways that drastically built brands and sales.


With over twenty years of experience directing strategy for some of the most respected and innovative companies in the world, David’s worked with a wide variety of clients, from technology (Samsung, HP, T-Mobile), automobiles (Nissan, Infiniti), sports (the Los Angeles Dodgers, Fox Sports Network), travel and tourism (American Airlines, Washington State Department of Tourism), and traditional packaged goods (Nestle, Hot Pockets.)


David has spoken on the TED Mainstage in 2010, TEDActive in 2011, at TEDxPhoenix and TEDxOmaha in 2010, and at TEDxSMU in 2010. David has also spoken at the SXSW conference in 2017, and has been an Effie judge multiple times.


David prides himself on marrying metropolitain-city trained talent with authenticity and genuine Heartland values.
