David Haynes is one of the most experienced, connected and respected people in the digital signage industry. He has run operations for huge, complicated networks, sold software and done business development, and both raised money and launched a still-live digital out of home network.

David Haynes is also a founder of the Preset Group. The Preset Group is an independent consultancy focused on digital signage and experiential spaces, from retail and malls to casinos and corporate buildings. The company was established in 2009 and has worked with clients as far away as South Africa, the Philippines and Indonesia. Their clients range from Fortune 500 companies to start-ups, and our work is everything from small projects and sanity-check workshops to long-term retained engagements where we become at-large members of a management team – helping guide plans. They work both with end-users and with vendors who are bringing new products and services to the marketplace.

A 35-year media and journalism veteran, David is perhaps best-known as the writer behind the digital signage industry's oldest blog, Sixteen:Nine. Dave is a frequent speaker and moderator at technology conferences, and is well-known as the industry’s “BS Filter.” David Haynes works out of an office in Burlington, Ontario, about 30 miles (50 km) from downtown Toronto.
