David Chemerow is dedicated to helping investors and prospective clients understand Rentrak’s story and vision for the future. As the company’s Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer, David works to ensure that Rentrak is making progress on its strategic and operational initiatives and helps to negotiate significant business deals. “Rentrak’s approach to the measurement business makes us unique in the marketplace,” David says. “The quality of our team and the products we’ve developed help us meet our goals and grow our company every day.”

He previously served as Executive Vice President, Finance and Operations and Chief Financial Officer for the company. He currently serves on the Board of Directors of Dunham’s Athleisure Corp., a sporting goods retailer. When he’s not flying across the country meeting with investors and speaking at financial conferences, David likes bike riding, scuba diving, attending theater and sitting down with a good book at home in Oregon, with his wife and two very spoiled Siamese cats.
