Dave SaundersHallmark Cards, Inc.

Dave’s Hallmark career has spanned a variety of functions, which have included Hallmark’s local manufacturing operations, as well as a considerable focus within the Asia-Pacific region. Dave and his family lived in Hong Kong for four years, where he directly supported the procurement of products for Hallmark’s global subsidiaries around the world. In his current role as Managing Director of Hallmark’s global procurement and Asia buying office, Dave travels frequently to Hong Kong, and throughout China, Vietnam, and other parts of Southeast Asia, with a key focus on leading and adapting Hallmark’s supply chain to meet today’s competitive marketplace and supply chain needs, including the latest in global trade policy developments.

For Dave, the IRC matters because it strengthens our Kansas City community by connecting local students, residents, and business leaders with important world leaders and key global experts.
