David Flynn, President
David Flynn started in the business in June of 2006 in Toronto and was no ordinary rep in the field. He saw an opportunity to be his own boss and worked steadily and hard to achieve his leadership status in order to start building a team. David made a name for himself as a top TNI rep and successfully taught his team to mirror his work ethic and productivity. By January of 2008, DCF Advanced Marketing Inc. was born and David has not looked back since! DCF achieved the #1 status in the TNI Newsletter within its first 3 months of business, and has consistently remained in or near the top since. In 2009, David expanded from his original Whitby, ON location and opened up a second DCF office in Toronto. As TNI’s Owner/Manager of the Year for two years in a row, David continued to be a force to be reckoned with. At the 2011 Owners’ Conference, David was awarded the first ever Business Development Recognition Award in honour of his hard work and achievements within TNI’s Business to Business Program. David followed up these achievements by being presented with his 5 Year Recognition Award at the 2013 Owners’ Conference, and was recognized for earning over 5 Million Newsletter Points by receiving his Silver Performance Award.
Michael Phillips, Assistant Manager, DCF Advanced Marketing Inc.
Michael began his career with David Flynn at DCF in July of 2015 and immediately built an affinity for working with clients whose programs and initiatives aid children in need. Michael first made a name for himself finding sponsors for children through World Vision, leading to multiple recognition accolades for his efforts and placing him consistently in the top ranks of the newsletter. In his second year in the business, Michael achieved the same success acquiring long-term monthly donors for the Hospital for SickKids. His success, passion and enthusiasm made him a natural mentor, and his promotion to Team Leader in the spring of 2017 really allowed his leadership skills to shine. His team, PKM Advertisement Team, debuted in the top 5 their first week in the newsletter and consistently stayed in the top ten every week thereafter, culminating in an incredible 4 first place finishes in his last 5 weeks as a Team Leader. Michael’s incredible work ethic, passion for the causes he represents, and ability to build and lead strong teams led to his well-deserved promotion to Assistant Manager on August 20th, 2017. Riding this momentum, Michael’s future continues to be bright as he now looks towards a promotion to Manager.
