DDA Board Member David Leighton founded his broadcast video software/hardware development consulting business, Leightronix, in 1981, relocated to Michigan in 1983, and eventually settled both his business and family in Holt. “It was a ‘no-brainer’,” he says. “In addition to a fantastic community, Holt offers a proactive approach to local development.”
David joined the DDA board in September 2008. As a member of the marketing committee, he is always looking for new ways the DDA can make businesses and residents aware of the opportunities and programs the township and the DDA have to offer. “It’s very exciting. Isee a real desire among my fellow board and committee members to move things in a positive direction,” he says.
David has given time and resources to Holt Public Schools, teaching after-school enrichment courses and donating equipment, video editing and DVD duplication in support of a variety of school events and programs. For the past several years, Leightronix has also sponsored the annual Holt Bands Light Show, as well as two Hope middle School Service Learning Day video events.
