About David Gonzalez, Owner/Manager, DPN
David Gonzalez is the Owner / Manager of Domestic Placement Network. His insight into estate management and staffing comes from several years of personal interaction with high profile clients around the world. Through his former role in private service, and now as owner of a domestic agency, he understands the many nuances of the household staffing business.
David is a featured speaker at industry events and recently served as a Founding Board Member and Treasurer of the International Association for Private Service Professionals. He is also the author of The Insider’s Guide to Household Staffing and has been quoted in several major publications including The Wall Street Journal, Chicago Tribune, New York Times, Ritz Carlton Magazine, and on CBS Radio.
Originally from Connecticut, David attended Penn State University where he earned a Marketing degree in 1992. After brief stints in Finance and Retail, he went to work for a television and radio personality as Personal Assistant and Household Manager. He spent several years traveling worldwide, in service to not just his employer, but working on a very personal level with exclusive clients. He was privileged to see “both sides of the coin” as an Assistant behind the scenes, and at times as an honored guest in the estates, cars, yachts, and jets of celebrities and top business personalities.
The search for a new position in 2000 led him to the Domestic Agency business where he discovered a perfect fit for all of his talents. With experience as Household Manager and Personal Assistant, a true understanding of the luxury lifestyle, and a solid business background, he started Domestic Placement Network. He quickly established the agency as a national presence in the field and gained a reputation for being informative and helpful to candidates and clients alike.
"All my life has been about service, and now I am lucky enough to help others find their ideal service relationships. It is truly rewarding to be in such a win-win situation." --David Gonzalez
