My name is David Cruse, Lynn and I have been married for 46 years, we have 3 married children and 6 grandchildren. My career was spent in retail, 13 years with Kroger/ Super-X and 32 years with Wal-Mart stores. We purchased a Summerwind Cottage while living in Charlotte in 2013 and then decided to retire and move full time to Seabrook Island in 2016 where we purchased a single-family home on Andell Way.
I joined the Kiawah/Seabrook Island Exchange Club in 2017 where shortly afterward I was appointed Chairman of the Community Service Health Committee. I also serve on the Speakers Committee and am a Team Captain for planting American flags on Kiawah/Seabrook Island. In April of 2019, I was appointed to the ARC Committee for SIPOA on which I presently serve.
While living in the Lake Norman area of North Carolina, I was the President of our homeowner’s association for 2 years. In my last position as a District Manager/ Market Manager, I spent 30 plus years in the Northeast, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. I have and demonstrate a strong belief in servant leadership in my personal, business and community life.
I have always had a strong desire to participate, help and contribute where I live. I am very supportive of our residents and always will strive to improve and maintain the quality of life wherever I live and play. I will bring all those skills to the board.
