David Dilling (cira 2012)
Dilling was born in 1968 just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania,
U.S.A. At the age of 7 David 'followed' his parents and two younger
sisters north to set-up house outside of Boston, Massachusetts in
a nice small town called Andover. (right by the New Hampshire border.)
Andover and its surroundings is where David basically “grew
up” and learned the strong work ethic he has today. In 1991
David moved to Southern California where the sun called him.
drastic change in both scenery and mentality did Dilling good and
he became much more cultured in his ways. Which in a way lead to
where he resides today with his partner of thirteen years, Bianca,
and their two sons, Thomas and Lukas in Pijnacker, The Netherlands. He is now on his tenth year in lovely Holland.
professional career began at the age of 10. This was brought about
by the wicked winters the North East of America could throw at you
and snow meant an opportunity in a young new development of houses.
Soon thereafter, Dilling realized that the snow only lasted for
a short time and that it was very unpredictable, thus he supplemented
his income, which was used primarily on Baseball cards and candy,
with Cutting lawns or grass. This proofed very successful and quickly
Dilling had many steady accounts.
out High School and College, Dilling was always working and many
times two or three jobs at one time! They ranged from Gas Station
attendants (they called this a “Petroleum Engineer”) to
sales jobs with small free publications and included such other
jobs as a night security guard in Boston at an “all girls
University!” (No kidding!) A clerk at the IRS, Bulk wagon driver at UPS’s
main sorting station for North of Boston, Taxi Driver, Limo Driver,
Valet parker, sales, sales and more sales.
his "real" professional career began in Santa Ana, California
where Dilling worked as a Sales Executive for a company called ProLite.
This young and aggressive company imports, assembled, marketed,
sold and serviced LED electronic display signs. Dilling’s
main function here was sales, with a particular expertise in “channel”
sales through a variety of “Sign manufacturers” and
with various U.S. Government accounts. Further, David setup several
key marketing campaigns including a fax-back coupon offer for dealers
which proofed very successful and revolutionary at the time. After
a couple years of “odd” jobs, which included several
endeavors for himself, Dilling soon realized that it would be best
to taste the Dutch and European way of life for more than just a
few month stay. And he began his search for a company with a young
and ground breaking technology which he could really 100% get behind
and either represent them in Europe or open a European office.
the tip of a great friend, Stephanie Lee, David learned of Markzware and one of it’s co-founders and current CEO,
Mr. Patrick Marchese. After meeting they agreed on a feasibility
study and business plan for opening and operating a European office.
After many hours of work the benefits became very clear to Patrick
and the other co-founder and Chief Engineer of Markzware, Mr, Ronald
Crandall and thus the real work started! In September, 1997 Markzware
Europe began! In late 1998 it officially became incorporated in
The Hague (Den Hang), The Netherlands under the name, “Markzware
b.v.” In the sixteen years since its opening, Dilling
and Markzware b.v. (Europe) alone have grown from a one person and two
cat show to a six person company with growth and a wide industry presence, participation and acceptance.
David enjoys many hobbies, interests and activities, such as history, Christian symbols, photography, astrophotography, videography, web page design, graphic design, social media and playing football (soccer) with his son's. Mountain climbing was the latest craze, with several hiking trips to the Alps. Yet with a recent leg break, hiking and playing soccer will have to tale a break.

Also, let the peace of the Christ control in YOUR hearts, for YOU were, in fact, called to it in one body. And show yourselves thankful. 16 Let the word of the Christ reside in YOU richly in all wisdom. Keep on teaching and admonishing one another with psalms, praises to God, spiritual songs with graciousness, singing in YOUR hearts to Jehovah. 17 And whatever it is that YOU do in word or in work, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, thanking God the Father through him.
