David Alonso

About THE HOST

Born and raised in London, David had worked in recruitment for many years before finally selling his recruitment business and starting his software company, TrackerRMS. Knowing the ins and outs of the recruitment market fueled his burning desire to start a recruitment software company that was designed for small and medium size recruitment companies focusing on product quality and strong customer relationships. Through his ventures as an entrepreneur, David knew others like himself had stories to tell about their “JourneyUP”. Thus, he developed a podcast that discusses the stories of some of the leading CEOs in the recruitment and staffing space.

David had always dreamt of living in the sunshine. Five years ago he pounced on his opportunity to live the American Dream and moved his family to sunny San Diego, California. You can find David either coaching his kids soccer teams, cheering on his favorite soccer team, Chelsea, or driving down the 101 Highway in his convertible listening to episodes from his beloved podcasts, The JourneyUP. The episodes are real and honest; they dive deep into success and failures of how the guest ended up where they are today, the challenges they faced and their tips and advice for anyone aspiring to do the same, whether they want to start a business, or need help scaling their own.
