David Chavez

Imagine this: a boy who was nearly arrested at 12 years old and was homeless at 15 years old was determined to create a different life for himself. He started his first business at 16 years old and enlisted in the U.S. Army at age 19. By age 35, he had started and scaled multiple businesses, owned one of the largest CPA firms in Las Vegas, and was selected as one of the most distinguished business leaders in Nevada. He has since worked with hundreds of other CEOs and companies to help them achieve the results they are looking for. This is the story of David Chavez, Founder and CEO of Assured Strategy, a business strategy coaching firm. David is passionate about helping other business leaders build and implement solutions that work. Through the failures and successes he’s experienced first-hand as an entrepreneur, David has developed systems and processes that achieve results. Since 2009, Assured Strategy has led over 250 companies to the summit to experience organizational success, alignment, and profitable growth.
