While David first started working for ROI at the young age of 12 helping to put together final appraisals, it would be over 15 years before he began his career with ROI.
David spent 7 years pursuing a successful career in retail management; quickly becoming a store manager of a large national retailer. His commitment to empowering his employees and his standard of providing exceptional service to every customer, led to numerous achievements in the retail industry.
In 2010, David and President and CEO, Timothy A. Brown decided that it was time to bring his skills and experience to ROI Corporation. David follows in his mothers' footsteps, Lanee Brown Rourke, who managed the company for 10 years. As an associate with ROI Corporation, David has appraised and successfully sold numerous practices. In addition to his role in sales, he has a great deal of experience and interest in marketing, operations and IT.
Much like his grandfather and the founder of ROI Corporation, Roy Brown, David's true passion is racing sailboats competitively and he aspires to live up to the high standards set by his grandfather, both on the race course and in the dental industry.
"My husband and I had contacted ROI Corp. to sell our practice when we decided to retire. Unfortunately, my husband passed unexpectedly before we could list the practice. David guided us through the process with compassion and professionalism, allowing us to sell the practice at a pace appropriate to our situation. My family is incredibly grateful for the support and care David provided us during a difficult transition. We extend our deepest thanks to David and ROI Corp. for facilitating the successful sale of our practice." - N. S.
"I listed my practice with ROI Corp. knowing I would get top dollar by working with them. We got top dollar offers but along with that, there were some hiccups. David worked nonstop to make sure the deal went through, dealing with our obstinate landlord and holding the buyer’s hand when things started getting rocky. He even talked us off the ledge once or twice. Thanks for all your hard work David. You made our deal happen and we couldn’t be happier." - Dr. S.
"David, I wanted to write to you to express my sincere gratitude for all of your hard work in the sale of my dental practice. It was a complicated process and I really appreciate your expertise, professionalism, great energy and positive approach, this truly made all the difference. I will definitely recommend your services to my colleagues, and feel free to use me as a reference for any potential clients. Thanks and best regards." - Dr. J.
"David, having you as my lead agent was a very positive experience. I initially asked for you as I had dealt with your mother 30 years ago. As I said earlier, you are a fine son and grandson, in a family of very capable dental representatives. Many thanks for doing your best to work for me, I appreciate your talent." - Dr. L.
"When I could no longer take care of my patients for personal reasons. I had listed my office for sale with David Rourke on the recommendations of other well known professionals in the industry. I am thankful for David’s services. I had a poorly performing dental office in a less than ideal location. Even throughout the selling process, we encountered great difficulties, problems ranging from the buyers to staff to the Landlord. Even the Landlord did not want to renew the premise lease. In the eyes of many people, this was truly an unsellable office. I was very concerned that no one would take care of the loyal patients of my office when I can no longer treat them. David was tenacious and determined to sell the office. He helped me through the entire process in addressing each of the problems that arose. In the end, with his knowledge and experience, he secured a buyer in a very timely fashion. Not only do I appreciate David’s hard work, my patients should be grateful that David was able to find a respectable and conscientious dentist to take care of them. Thank you David." - Dr. Y.
"Dear David, I would like to thank you very much for everything you did for me in the recent sale of my dental practice. Right out of the gate you were committed to putting in the time to address all the unique factors about my office and immediately recognized opportunities and potential challenges that I hadn't even considered. Your knowledge and positivism were a great asset in the transition and I would absolutely recommend your services to my colleagues." - Dr. S. B.
"David Rourke recently assisted us with the sale of our dental practice. He was extremely helpful in facilitating the entire process of appraisal, marketing and the ultimate quick sale of the practice. David's knowledge of the dental profession proved to be of great value and he was very responsive and professional. We would strongly recommend David when you're looking for a dental practice broker to assist in the sale of your business." - M. S.
"Dear David, I appreciate your hard work, your insights, expertise and professionalism in the sale of my practice. There have been a tremendous amount of changes and complexities in this type of transaction since I bought my first practice in 1983.
Your skills and knowledge helped me navigate successfully through the tortuous process." - Dr. P.
