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 15+ years of combined work experience in marketing, sales and project management.

Kuch's professional experience varies from working in various industries, such as telecommunications, technology, software, fitness and manufacturing. He worked at Bell Canada for almost seven years in different business roles, including a Sales Representative, Project Specialist, Advertising Coordinator and Marketing Manager. He has also worked in software sales for two years for a point-of-sale company and four years as a Territory Sales Manager for a large manufacturing company focused on residential, commercial and industrial projects. Recently, Kuch is working on two start-up corporations: one focused on the fitness/technology industry and the other one focused on education. He's passionate about growing those businesses and contributing to the community in a positive way.

Aside from his business experience, Kuch is passionate about teaching. He has 7+ years experience in tutoring business students and has been a Teaching Assistant for undergraduate marketing students. In September 2018, he started instructing marketing and project management courses at Capilano University and since then he has transitioned into teaching full-time with the School of Business and part-time teaching roles with Langara College and Douglas College.

I believe 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 my spare time, I enjoy fishing, triathlons, yoga, running, hiking, biking, playing softball and golf, working on my businesses, and anything to do with adventure and traveling.

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 great 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."
