David Rea has an extensive background and a track record of success in finance, strategic planning, operations, human resources, administration and legal matters that spans 30 years. He began his work life with almost seven years at PwC (previously Cooper & Lybrand) in the Business Assurance practice, where he developed the foundation of his technical and managerial skills. During this time, David obtained his MBA from the University of Toronto and became a Chartered Accountant. He then took the role of Director of Finance for Netcom Canada, a profitable mid-sized ISP that was ultimately acquired and became the Internet arm of AT&T Canada. After a couple of other brief engagements, David spent the next four years as the Director of Finance for Bell Sympatico.
After leaving Bell, he took on a broader role as CFO and eventually also VP Operations at TELoIP, a small GTA-based company with patented technology servicing the telecom industry. Here he spent the next seven years helping the company grow its top line revenue, build processes, policies, reports and governance structures, before stepping into his current position as CFO/COO of Security Compass.
