Bio

David Kuch (MBA, University of Alberta, 2011) completed an MBA from the University of Alberta in 2011 and has completed a Bachelor of Commerce degree with Honours in Marketing from York University in 2006. He has over 15 years of combined work experience in marketing, sales and project management.

His professional experience varies from working in a variety of industries, such as telecommunications, technology, software, fitness and manufacturing. Kuch worked at Bell Canada for almost seven years in different business roles, including being a Sales Representative, Project Specialist, Advertising Coordinator and Marketing Manager. He has also worked in software sales for a point-of-sale company, and presently has been working over 3 years as a Territory Sales Manager for a large manufacturing company focused on residential, commercial and industrial projects.

Aside from his business experience, Kuch is passionate about teaching and helping others. He has over 5 years of experience in tutoring business students and he has been a Teaching Assistant for undergraduate marketing students. In September 2018, he started instructing marketing and project management courses at Capilano University, and is looking forward to teaching more courses with the School of Business.

Kuch believes living a balanced lifestyle with balancing social, personal, career and fitness time is a key factor to being productive and successful in all areas of life. In his spare time, he enjoys fishing, running, CrossFit, yoga, playing golf, working on business plans and anything to do with adventure and traveling.

p>Teaching has always been a passion of mine and I truly enjoy helping others.

In the classroom environment, a lot of the business skills that I have learned are transferable to teaching as a business instructor allowing me to relate course content to real-life examples. A quote that I came up with when I was a Teaching Assistant at York University instills my core beliefs on being an instructor, which is the following:

"Realizing your own potential and being able to use it to its fullest and achieving success is a great feeling to have. Helping an individual realize their own potential and being able to use it to their fullest and making them successful is an even better thing to have accomplished in life."
