Dave Van de Riet is Vice President of Investments with Raymond James & Associates managing the assets for over 300 households. He has worked in the financial services industry since 1991 and is a graduate of the University of Missouri, St. Louis.
Dave has been dedicated to the fight against ALS for more than 20 years. After losing his father to a five-year battle with ALS in 2000, Dave and his family reached out to the St. Louis Regional Chapter of The ALS Association where he continues to serve as a board member and ALS community leader.
Starting in 2001, Dave’s mother and siblings began participating in the St. Louis Walk to Defeat ALS. The family and friends’ team is “the Globemasters,” named for the USAF airplane that Dave’s dad flew. The Globemasters have participated in every Walk since 2001 and have been one of the top local fundraising teams ever since.
In 2006, Dave was asked to join the local board of The ALS Association. Later that same year, he became the St. Louis Walk chair; a role in which he continues today. In his long service to the chapter board, Dave served as the Board Chair from 2012-2019 and on the national committees of Public Policy from 2016 - 2017 and was the Vice Chairman of the Governance committee from 2017 - 2019.
