Dave Eggert Bio:
My family and I have lived in Ankeny for nine years and we have been a part of Iowa Rush since 2009. My daughter Kristin currently plays in U9 Academy and my son Ryan plays in U11 Select. After coaching Ryan's Rec team for three seasons and being an active supporter of both kids' soccer since then I have established a strong belief in Iowa Rush's philosophy and approach to youth soccer. I am running for an At-large Board member position because I want to help the club continue to grow and reach its full potential by developing our players and youth soccer in central Iowa.
I am a mechanical engineer by training and have worked for seventeen years in the automotive and hydraulics industries. I currently work as an application engineer within the Sales and Marketing department at Danfoss Power Solutions in Ames. My role is to provide technical support to our customers so they can use Danfoss products within the machines they build. I work well with a wide range of people from both technical and non-technical backgrounds. I do a lot of troubleshooting each day, where I actively listen to customers to learn about their machines, processes, needs, and problems before developing possible solutions. I believe that these skills, along with my attention to detail, make me a strong candidate for the Iowa Rush Board of Directors, and I look forward to helping the club continue its mission to be the club of choice for central Iowa.
