David, an ordained minister, started his career in vocational ministry and was on the staff of one of the largest churches in Central Florida. Having a passion for business, he launched into entrepreneurial endeavors that complemented his ministry opportunities. He ultimately transitioned vocationally from helping people inside the church to helping people outside the church, applying his skills initially as a professional speaker and ultimately into building a highly successful consulting firm.
As the President of Waits Consulting Group, Inc., he became known globally as a thought leader in leadership development and strategy implementation. He consistently helped his clients create thriving organizational environments that facilitated rapid growth, innovative development and on-going profitability. As a highly sought after consultant, speaker and author, he worked with tens of thousands of people in all 50 states, and internationally in Canada, the United Kingdom, and South Africa.
David brings to our team a highly unique perspective of working with some of the largest, most successful companies on the globe as well as multiple Christian ministries both here in the United States and England, Europe and South Africa. He brings time-tested, honed business acumen and his proven methodology of operational excellence to ensure the success of our team.

Archángel was introduced to marketing in his twenties while he was completing his Graduate degree in New York. He discovered a passion and talent for it, and spent over twelve years as a field leader, achieving the highest rank possible in the company he was with by the age of 30 and earning him admission into both the Millionaire’s Club and the President’s Club. Having distinguished himself in this way, Archángel was approached by the company’s executive team and asked to leave the field and work at the corporate level.
Archángel philosophy is defined by investing in forward-thinking solutions with an eye toward technology and first-2-market advantages. Archángel has created and pioneered markets using a best-of-breed management team methodology. His mental and physical cornerstones for success include surrounding himself with smart, experienced, respected individuals at the top of their industries. He has the ability to take measured risks, cultivate instincts for emerging markets, and demonstrate the acute market-awareness necessary for success. He considers these aspects of business acumen “simple rules for a complex world, instrumental in stacking odds toward the probability of success.” Archángel quickly learned that no idea is bigger than the team. These early business experiences have ingrained Archángel with the belief that if you build the Team, the Team will build the business.
Archangel is excited to bring to the table his diverse background, his superlative education, his field and corporate experience, and especially his passion and enthusiasm for his work so that he can help everyone succeed here at Parlago.
