David Buenaventura

Branch Operations Manager

In 2019, David joined Presidio Capital Management through the firm’s Financial Services internship program.  Today, he currently serves as the firm’s Vice President of Operations and Chief Compliance Officer, overseeing administration, marketing, information technology, financial management, and regulatory compliance.  David also currently serves on Presidio’s Leadership Team, where he helps advance the goals of the organization and all its people. He obtained a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from San Diego State University, where he specialized in Management and graduated cum laude.

David has considerable and diverse experience in organizational leadership and c-suite management, including twelve active-duty years of leading and mentoring Marines as a Staff Non-Commissioned Officer overseas and in the U.S.  Prior to joining Presidio Capital, he was a Marine Corps Drill Instructor, where he felt most rewarded by training and molding young individuals to become Marines. His numerous decorations include the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal and the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal from deployments in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan.

David’s core values embody hard work, humility, integrity, and personal courage. He calls upon these character traits daily as he helps the organization face new challenges and works diligently to find the best possible solution for the clients and employees of the organization. 

As a Southern California native from Long Beach, CA, it is in his DNA to enjoy a beer with his friends and family in a Lakers, Dodgers, or Rams Jersey.  As a transplant “Angeleno” now living in San Diego, David can at times be caught watching the recently departed “C-word” football team.  In the sparest of times David continues to serve in the Marine Corps as a Gunnery Sergeant in the Reserves but mostly spends his time with his wife and two children.
