Regional Sales Manager
Dave Amaya joined FirstWatch after nearly three decades of experience in the public safety industry. As a regional sales manager, Dave cultivates long-lasting relationships in new and existing customers in central and northeastern regions of the U.S. He says he looks forward to expanding the FirstWatch footprint by matching needs with solutions. “I love working for a company that supports people in public safety with their daily tasks.”
Dave began his career in law enforcement, working as a sheriff deputy in Los Angeles and then as a police officer in Kansas, where he served as a sniper on the SWAT team. He transitioned to public safety software sales in 2004, where he used his experience in law enforcement to understand and better assist customers.
Dave serves his customers from his home in Overland Park, KS near Kansas City where he also volunteers for the nonprofit Big Brother Big Sister. Dave earned an associate degree in Administration of Justice at Golden West College in Huntington Beach, CA and is currently enrolled at Johnson County College.
When he’s not helping a customer or studying, Dave enjoys riding his 2018 Harley Davidson motorcycle, watching football with friends or playing with his cat, Theon Greyjoy. He loves to travel and a dream vacation would include Italy and Greece.
