Dave Stamm, CEO, Projecting Whatever It Takes to Pivot and Grow – Episode 116

Share this blog:


Dave Stamm is the CEO of Stamm Media and the CEO of Stamm Technologies, and practices the mantra of doing whatever it takes. Stamm Media is not your ordinary AV company, they are truly a one stop shop to create a unique and memorable experience in the world of event technology. Stamm Technologies is an enthusiastic, service organization providing cutting-edge IT services to clients and to be the go-to trusted advisor on helping clients leverage technology.

Dave is such a passionate advocate for his team to be trusted advisors that his team hosts Virtual Stamm Talks where clients or anyone can sign up and ask the Stamm Technologies team questions about IT best practices, solutions to frustrating IT problems, and many other interesting IT topics. And if your fan of independent films, you’ll appreciate that Dave is a member of the Board of Directors at Milwaukee Film, which operates Milwaukee’s Film Festival, and operates one of the last standing historic film palaces, The Oriental Theatre.

Mike and Dave cover a ton of great stuff in this episode like how he taught himself how to do computer programming in the 4th grade – and this is when programming wasn’t cool and before the internet existed, his built in nature of taking responsibility for anything he did, his early experiences selling Apple computers in the 90s before Steve Jobs came back and turned around the company, how he found his niche in IT that resulted in building a list of 40 clients while attending college, what happened when he confronted a well-loved, charismatic employee that embezzled over one million dollars, how his “whatever it takes” mantra came to fruition that guided his success and much more.
