Dave Lakin is a Co-Founder and the President of Business Development at VirtuActive. Dave grew up in Two Rivers, WI before moving to Blair, NE where he attended High School and upon graduating, attended Wayne State College. Dave credits much of his success to working with business owners of all types that have both failed and succeeded, applying those lessons to the businesses he owned prior to VirtuActive as well as VirtuActive. He loves taking ideas and bringing them to life as well as working through obstacles to find a solution. One of Dave’s core beliefs is that by striving to help others achieve their success, your own success will follow.
Dave has had the opportunity to serve in leadership in many organizations in his career. Dave has previously served on the Anytime Fitness Franchisee Leadership Council, the early years of Complete Nutrition's Franchisee Advisory Council, Dave is currently serving on the Board of Directors for HBAL (Home Builders Association of Lincoln) and has previously served on Metro Omaha Builders Association's Associate Council as Vice-President (1-year) and President (3-years), nominated for MOBA Board of Directors (2-years), served on Centersphere Leadership as Vice-President (1-year) and President (2-years), and BNI Leadership as Vice-President (1-year) and President (1-year).
In his personal time, Dave loves to spend time with his best friend and wife, Katie. Dave and Katie have a blended family with 3 sons, Tyler & Cruz + Leo. Their weekends are spent like many of yours, running kids around from youth sport to youth sport, driveway beers with neighbors, and binges on favorite shows. Dave is an avid golfer and recently has been introduced to hunting and has become obsessed with it, much to Katie's dismay.
