David Angotti is a serial entrepreneur with a proven track record of successful exits. By the age of 30, he had founded and successfully exited an EdTech brand. During this time, he regularly contributed to a top-ten marketing blog in the world, provided consultation services around mergers and acquisitions for Fortune 100 companies, and held the position of VP of Marketing for a large family of over 1,000 eCommerce sites serving nearly one billion website visitors annually.
In addition to his EdTech Company, David co-founded a prominent short-term property management company in Gatlinburg, TN, and co-founded StaySense, a marketing and experimentation platform that builds technology solutions for the travel industry.
In February 2020, he bought out the other owner of StaySense and doubled down on company growth and the launch of new brands/products. Successfully navigating the challenges posed by COVID-19, the company experienced exceptional growth. This growth, coupled with new partnerships, prompted David to sell the company to Guesty in 2023. Guesty is an end-to-end platform for property managers and property management companies, providing cloud-based tools that help with things like tracking guest check-ins and revenue of each property. Recently, he was promoted to the Chief Evangelist for Guesty, and also leads several US-based Guesty teams.
In addition to founding and exiting multiple technology startups, David is an accomplished author, land developer, and a certified Airline Transport Pilot. During his tenure at NetJets, where he was one of the youngest pilots in company history, he piloted flights for numerous household names aboard the fastest passenger jet in the world.
When David is not at work, you are likely to find him running trails, boating, traveling, and spending time with his family in Nashville, TN. An accomplished ultra-marathoner, he has completed one of the most challenging 50-mile races in North America and recently finished the renowned 100-Mile Leadville Race Across The Sky.
Since 2015, David has been an avid user of the Club, having taken a total of 29 trips.
