David Anderson '88
• Sales and Entrepreneurship

David Anderson graduated from Ridley in 1988 and went on to pursue a career as a retail stock broker. After spending four years in stock trading, David realized this wasn’t his passion. His real passion is in the equine industry and David also wanted to run his own company. The opportunity at Phoenix Performance Products Inc. came along, and he raised enough money to be able to purchase the company.
 
Today, David is the president and CEO of Phoenix Performance Products Inc. They are a manufacturer of protective equipment for the equestrian rider. Along with being president of Anderson Farms, he is also a breeder and owner of thoroughbred and standard bred Clydesdale and Percheron horses.
 
David would make a great mentor for any young alumni who is looking to become an entrepreneur, or looking to pursue their passion.
