Dave Newell

A long-time consultant and entrepreneur, Dave founded Loptr to make it easier for organizations to get their information security processes done. His belief was that, with the right building blocks and a helping hand, even client teams without security expertise could have a working information security program. Dave crafted Virtual Security Team to that end and he is part of the team that helps Loptr’s clients get information security work done. Dave is a former US Air Force officer who served in the Pentagon’s 7th Communications Group, and he previously co-founded Crave Technology in Denver, Colorado. He earned his bachelor’s in computer systems/mathematics.

Dave is a sometime mountain biker and “top 8” goalkeeper in East Aurora’s 8-team, over-30 summer league. He is a coach and board member for Aurora Arsenal Soccer Club, which serves about 1,000 kids and adults in Western New York.
