Biography
David King is President of David King & Associates, Inc., a commercial real estate firm serving metropolitan Chicago. The firm specializes in office, retail and medical real estate. David attended Triton College earning an Associate’s degree and completed his Bachelor’s degree at the University of Illinois, both with honors. He maintains that the contacts and experiences he made at Triton provided him with the foundation to pursue his interest in the commercial real estate field.

While a student at Triton, King was elected as a student senator to the Triton College Student Association (TCSA) and was extremely involved in student life.

David has served on the Triton College Foundation Board since 1999. From 2000 to 2012 he served as President, during which time the Foundation raised over $3.5 million dollars and awarded over 1,200 scholarships.

David believes alumni are an important partner in the Foundation’s ongoing success because they have experienced Triton College first hand and understand the value of having a degree from Triton. He asks that alumni support their alma mater by attending campus events, participating in social and reunion opportunities sponsored by the Alumni Relations office, and donating to the school. David encourages students and alumni “to stay connected to the College and utilize the network of Triton alumni that can help you pursue your future endeavors.”
