Dave Hataj – March Speaker
Dave Hataj wasn’t always happy at his job. Growing up in a family manufacturing business in Edgerton, Wis., he chafed under its chaotic, broken environment. He couldn’t leave soon enough. After years of wrestling with God about his career direction, though, he returned to lead Edgerton Gear. Through his understanding of Scripture, and guided by Christian mentors, Dave transformed the company to focus on quality, value and service, and empowering employees to grasp their impact on the world. He is a passionate advocate of cultural business transformation through God-centered principles. A journeyman machinist, Dave holds a doctorate from Bakke Graduate University, a master’s in Christian studies from Regent College in Vancouver, B.C., and a B.A. from the University of California-Irvine.
