Captain David Gallimore, Founder & CEO of Sustainable World Group

Experienced Growth Business and Startup Coach - Integrative Life Coach - Maritime Captain - Winning Sailboat Racer

For the last 25 years, I’ve been a founder of seven successful startups in different industries as well as a growth business, startup founder, and professional career coach. I’ve enjoyed the privilege of helping hundreds of leaders and entrepreneurs from all over the globe create $7+ billion in value for small and large companies such as Boeing, Capgemini Consulting, IBM, Red Hat, Seattle University Business/Law Clinic, Steamaster, Wall Data, and many more!

I founded Sustainable World Group in January 2022 after it became crystal clear that we were not moving fast enough as business leaders to live more integrative lives and work better together to boldly improve the health of our people and adapt to our changing environment. I believe business leaders rolling up their sleeves and getting their hands dirty with government leaders, NGO leaders, and civil society leader has never been more critical. By leveraging coaching to help leaders experience more adventurous, integrative lives, applying the power of business for good across our communities, we will be the positive change we wish to see in the world…*faster*!

As a maritime captain and sailboat racer, I understand how having an experienced navigator by your side to steer you through both the sunny days and the storms of life can make all the difference.

I have rarely worked with anyone who is so personally invested in growing my business and myself as a leader like David.

To me his secret sauce is the combination of his warm character, tremendous business experience and strategic insights to pinpoint exactly what my business needs.
