David Wade, CEO & Founder
David Wade previously served as CEO of Pollen-Tech, from whom we license the technology, and currently serves on the Board of Pollen-Tech and as Pollen-Tech’s Vice President of Marketing and International Development. He is a successful entrepreneur with 25+ years of experience founding and leading businesses in agriculture, education and technology. An MBA graduate, he co-founded Sequoia Schools acting as both president of all of Sequoia’s school boards and the corporate chairman of the board for 16 years. He led Sequoia’s growth inception to over 4,000 students annually and almost 400 full- and part-time employees with multiple students, employees and locations in the US and internationally.
Mr. Wade’s family roots in U.S. agriculture precede the American Revolution; although the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl forced his grandfather to do other things. In spite of that shift, Mr. Wade claims his father kept a small family farm “just to keep me too busy to get into trouble, even though I ran my first red light at age 12 on our tractor.”
His agricultural experience includes that of CEO of GWP, LLC, and an agricultural solutions provider, including a food processing plant. Today, he invests in or directs various companies and real estate ventures, including some producing farm land.
