An experienced executive, Dave Turner has spent the last 29 years of his career in West Michigan passionately leading and coaching teams to achieve their goals.  For over two decades he oversaw the growth of Kent Companies from one local office to an organization with 20 business units in five states.  After leading Kent through the recession and the transition from a second to third generation family ownership team, he joined the Halftime Institute in 2013.  As a Halftime executive coach his role was to guide successful leaders toward their second half calling.

In 2015 Dave’s son threw him a curveball by asking him to partner in a new father-son business.  This (ad)venture evolved into the 2016 purchase of Vos Glass, another second generation construction business. Vos Glass continues to keep Dave very busy.

 

Dave has also served on many national and local association boards within the construction industry.  As board chair with the Associated Builders and Contractors of West Michigan, he led the transition of the retiring CEO of 40 years and established the Leadership Development Program as a cornerstone of the association.  In addition to Dave’s marketplace leadership he has volunteered for several local community and church organizations by serving on boards, leading initiatives and helping with strategy.  On the volunteer side Dave is most proud of the role he played in bringing the National Center for Fathering’s conference to Grand Rapids.

It’s all about family for Dave and spending time with his bride of 35 years, two great sons, their wives and especially his three grandchildren!  Dave enjoys sports and all things outdoors.
