Dave Wilson has a great passion for professional development and project management. He worked for the AASCB certified Executive MBA Program at Boise State University as a graduate assistant where he gained great insights into how to professionally develop working/busy individuals while providing a fun/engaging experience doing it. ln December of 2012, Dave started an internship with Micron Technology, Inc. and in Aug of 2013 was converted to an HR Business Analyst. He earned his PMP certification in May of 2014 and with that new knowledge, Dave was able to help stand up a PMO (Project Management Office) for Micron’s HR department. Over 4 years and after being promoted to HR Project Manager, he managed global cross functional projects and programs around the world (During which he was sent to live in Singapore for 6 months where he gained unique experiences working with cultures from Singapore, China, Taiwan, and Malaysia). After enjoying some success with HR’s PMO, Dave was then asked to move into a Micron operations department to help stand up another successful PMO team and currently manages many large manufacturing projects and programs globally for Micron. Dave was also one of the founding members of the Micron Young Professionals where he was elected the Professional Development Chair. He stood up formal mentorship, knowledge drop, lunch and learn, and Pro Dev Day programs for the employee resource group to help its members reach their full potential at Micron. Dave hopes to have a similar impact and to help his fellow project management professionals reach their potential with PMIWIC! Personally, Dave enjoys fishing, cross-fit, eating out, running his dog (an Akita) and recently got married in the summer of 2020.
