Dave Aeschliman

David brings a wealth of strategic marketing knowledge and selling skills to the table. He’s responsible for helping clients establish strategic direction, writing strategic plans and tactical execution.

David graduated from Kansas State University in 1976 with a major in marketing, and a double minor in journalism and public relations. He went to work for DeKalb Genetics’ in-house advertising agency as a copywriter, and was eventually promoted to Manager of Public Relations, overseeing the work of six crop divisions, irrigation division and animal group.

In 1981, he moved to downtown Chicago, where he worked for Meldrum & Fewsmith as account representative. He had responsibility for FMC International, where he helped launch new products into Mexico and Latin America, and for Ford Motor Co., where he assisted in introducing new products. David also worked with clients G. Washington Bank and country music station WJJD.

In 1983, David moved to WarrenAnderson in Davenport to start a separate public relations division. By mid-1985, he was overseeing 33 clients with more than one-half million in sales. That’s when client Wyffels Hybrids of Atkinson, IL lured him away.

As v.p. of sales and marketing, David overhauled the organization to stop a four year sales decline, and created an 18% per annum growth curve for five years. In fact, when he left in 1991, the company had climbed to third in market share in its marketing area.

Lowell Carlson, owner of digital pre-press firm TechGraphics, met David in 1983. Lowell first hired Warren Anderson as his agency, and later continued to hire David to work weekends on TechGraphics’ strategic growth plans. As the business grew from a start-up to a multi-million dollar firm, Lowell hired David in 1991 to diversify his company. In the ensuing years, David launched both Barrister Graphics* and Quantech** and served as chief operating officer.

In September 1996, David realized a dream come true when he and long-time friend Jake Jacks started their own company, Results.

He is the recipient of NAMA’s prestigious President’s Marketing Award, and his work has won dozens of national effectiveness awards. In addition, he has taught economics to grade schoolers in Junior Achievement and taught marketing and public relations at St. Ambrose University, Davenport. He serves on the Hampton, IL Methodist Church planning group as well as on the Board of Directors of the Iowa Quad Cities Make-A-Wish Foundation.

David is an avid fisherman and golfer, which skill level he describes as “finely honed poor.” David is married and lives in the Illinois countryside, where he and his wife are building a log home on their farm.
