With a penchant for music and a talent for developing new revenue streams within established businesses, David Precheur is an innovative entrepreneur with a proven track record of high-level successes. Precheur made an auspicious leap into the music business in 1988, when he took a job managing the rock band Blues Traveler. As the band's success mushroomed, Precheur augmented his role to become president and a partner of Traveler Empire, Inc., the band's corporate entity. For the next 12 years, Precheur oversaw concert and business operations worldwide for the multiplatinum-selling, Grammy Award-winning band.
In 1992, Precheur collaborated with the group to create "The H.O.R.D.E. Tour," a multiple-artist national summer tour that continued for eight years and grossed more than $50 million in revenue. As partner, board member, tour manager and top talent adviser of H.O.R.D.E., Precheur was instrumental in showcasing up-and-coming artists for audiences across the country - and jump-starting the careers of some of the biggest names in music today, including the Dave Matthews Band, Sheryl Crow, Lenny Kravitz, Beck, Phish, The Smashing Pumpkins, Natalie Merchant and many others. With H.O.R.D.E., Precheur pioneered and helped create the now exploding music genre, Jambands.
