David Foster is the CEO of Business Valuation Resources, the U.S.-based publisher of transaction, legal and other databases for the business valuation profession. Much of BVR’s growth results from responses to the revolution in information industry business processes during the last decade—changes that have forced BVR and other publishers to redefine sales, marketing, product development, technology, content creation, pricing, and every other part of their operations. In addition to BVR, Foster was the co-founder of IOMA, Inc., a management publisher he sold to the Bureau of National Affairs in 1998. He has served on the Boards and/or Executive Committees of 14 information industry companies, as well as a number of non-profits such as Copyright Clearance Center and Bates College. He was SIPA President in 1999, won SIPA’s Hall of Fame Award 2000, and is current co-chair of SIPA's annual CEO Roundtable, which meets again in February 2020 (please join us!).
