David A. Browne ’18BUS
Co-founder & CEO
ToughLove Corporation (TLC)

As CEO and co-founder of ToughLove Corporation, David A. Browne leads a young venture improving and reinventing the automotive seatbelt. Patented and pending products and technologies deliver both breakthrough safety performance improvements to today’s automotive seatbelt (via materials science and design enhancements) and the invention of the smart, personalized, and collision-predictive seatbelt of the autonomous future.

David previously led a private investment company and board-level strategic and organizational consulting practice and before that was a founding member and then partner of the strategy and organizational change practice of Accenture. He began his career in account management at Ogilvy & Mather in NY.

David holds an MBA in finance from Columbia’s Graduate School of Business and a BS economics in marketing and entrepreneurship from The Wharton School.

David’s passion for his work at ToughLove is fueled by his family’s personal life experience, when two of his children were severely injured 10 years ago (in a low speed collision) by their seatbelts.
