David West, Director of Technology at SENTRE, is responsible for maintaining the sophisticated IT infrastructure that makes SENTRE one of the most cutting-edge commercial real estate and investment companies in San Diego.
Dave also oversees sister company Bandwidth Now, helping to transform commercial buildings into "next gen" environments by supervising the installation of the company’s patent-pending Building Optical Network (BON). In 1999, Dave spearheaded an initiative with Intel to create Intel Inside® within a commercial office building. As a result of this collaboration, Bandwidth Now and SENTRE were nominated by Intel for the Computerworld Honors Program's 21st Century Achievement Award.
Dave is a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) and a Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP). In 2009, he worked with Cisco to establish an in-house call manager for SENTRE’s Voice-over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone system, reducing costs and eliminating the company’s reliance on external providers.
Before coming to SENTRE, Dave served in the United States Navy for 10 years as an Electronic Engineer and Information Technology Specialist.
He stays active in the community by joining up with colleague Matthew Spathas in transforming education throughout San Diego.
On his free time, he is passionate about flying and recently became a licensed pilot. Dave has one son, Joshua.
