David DumeyerSenior Consultant

One of Triad's senior consultants is Dave Dumeyer, is also owner of Dave Dumeyer Consulting, LLC.  The firm specializes in educational policy and political organizations, a mix he learned through a change in careers. Dave toiled sixteen years in the vineyards of public education, teaching foreign languages and social studies. He later worked in the state legislature, where he dealt extensively with agricultural and educational policy.  

His government experience encompasses 21 years as a House of Representatives staff member and, ultimately, as Executive Director of the House Education Committee. During his tenure, he helped to draft a number of key pieces of legislation.  One of the most prominent was Act 48, which mandates the continuing education of Commonwealth-certified teachers.

Dave also brings local government experience to the table, having served as an elected township supervisor in West Hempfield Township for over two decades, the last seven of those as chairman of the board.  In addition to serving the township residents, Dave sits as a regional representative to the Lancaster County Tax Collection Bureau, one of Pennsylvania's premier tax commissions.

Dave brings multiple levels of value to Triad Strategies: his numerous contacts in state and local government and politics; his aptitude for researching  and analyzing complex policy problems; his ability to find solutions to difficult questions; and his knack for brokering successful deals.  The latter skill was honed through his local political activities in Pennsylvania's most Republican county, Lancaster, where he served over six years as the county chairman.  Throughout his chairmanship, he had an unblemished record of leading the Lancaster County GOP to victorious campaigns for county, state and federal offices.

Dave also is treasured asset to some of Triad's non-profit clients but his service doesn't stop at the office door.  He has been personally involved in Rotary, 4-H, Scouting, his congregation, and the Lancaster County educational community.  He currently teaches U.S. History and the History of Western Civilization on an adjunct basis at the Lancaster campus of Harrisburg Area Community College.

Dave received his BA in German (education) from Susquehanna University and his MA in American history from Millersville University.  He lives with Donna, his wife of 42 years, in Landisville, PA. They are the parents of two married daughters and six grandkids. His roots, however, are in western Pennsylvania, as evidenced by his true passion: the Pittsburgh Steelers.
