Combining his personal values of adventure and helping others, Dave Taylor is striving for a personal goal in his 6-year climbing career, along with a goal
to give back to the people of Guatemala.

Through LDR’s long-standing relationship with the NRECA, Dave and his team have worked closely with rural electric cooperatives and have a deep appreciation of what it takes to turn the lights on -and keep them on- for families and communities in dire need of electricity.

“The feeling I get when I’m on a summit must be like the feeling a family gets the first time their lights come on, and they realize how life-changing it will be for them from that moment forward.”

– Dave Taylor, CEO, LDR Leadership
