Dale Legaspi is a Sr. Account Executive at the David James Agency, a boutique agency focused on cutting-edge high tech. As a former baseball player at USC, he brings to his work a tangible competitive streak that greatly benefits his client base of primarily start-up and emerging companies.
In his SAE role, Dale has written, staffed trade shows and handled media and industry analyst relations for a number of B2B accounts ranging from semiconductor and telecom software companies to network systems integrators and industrial power supply vendors.
Even growing up locally in Burbank, Dale shared the prevailing perception that high tech was completely dominated by Silicon Valley. However, with only one northern California-based client, it’s clear that tech is alive and well all up and down the west coast, and he’s confident that the DJA is in a great spot to thrive right along with it.
On weekends in the spring, you can find him on high school baseball fields sharing his passion and imparting his competitive fire to the freshman team at his alma mater, Crespi Carmelite. He splits the rest of his free time among spending it with friends, trying to learn new songs on one of his guitars and complaining about the lack of a playoff in college football.

UPDATE: As of July 2010, Dale has accepted a SAE position at Engage PR, where he will continue to focus on high tech companies–primarily in the carrier and wireless spaces. He will continue to serve as your communications co-chair and primary blogger from his new home up in NorCal.
