David Belgum is Chief Financial Officer and Chief Security Officer at Sureify. David joined the company in 2015 to help raise capital and lay the foundation for growth.
Before joining Sureify, David spent 20 years as a finance leader at several Silicon Valley startups. While he has been involved in life science, semiconductor, and IT services, he keeps finding his way back to software startups, where he has gone through three successful exits.
An area of particular interest for David was understanding how companies create value. This led him into the field of business valuation, where he developed appraisals for financial reporting and tax purposes. He has put the knowledge gained there to good use by driving practices at subsequent companies that resulted in significant increases in value.
David received an MBA from Santa Clara University and a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from San Jose State University. He lives with his wife in San Jose, CA.
