Meet The Coaches


I am very indebted to Dave Brookmire and Corporate Performance Strategies. Faced with any talent quandary, Dave brings not only his wealth of experience and industrial psychology background, but also a practical tailored approach that is appealing to both HR and business leaders. Through our continued partnership with Dave and Corporate Performance Strategies, we have made significant progress in both our talent pipeline processes and outcomes here at The Cheesecake Factory Inc.

We first engaged CPS about five years ago to assist with integration planning and execution. At that time we looked for a partner that fit our unique methods, philosophy, style and culture, and was capable of helping us achieve our business goals. Over the years we have valued CPS’ professional expertise and high quality work. Dave and his team are preferred providers who have been able to meet our aggressive time schedules for starting and executing complex and large transactions across different industries. They quickly frame our requirements, execute project plans, meet deadlines and effectively translated our deal objectives into action plans. We receive positive feedback on their effectiveness from the sellers leadership team and from our senior partners in the firm. Their work has contributed substantially to the successful transitions of companies into the Platinum Equity portfolio.
