Edgeworth Economics, an economic, financial, and quantitative consulting firm with offices in Pasadena, San Francisco, Washington D.C. and Toronto, Canada, has appointed Dr. Jesse David as President effective January 1, 2019.

David will take over day-to-day operations from Dr. John Johnson, who will continue to serve as CEO, a company statement said Thursday. Johnson and David co-founded Edgeworth Economics in 2009, with David establishing the Pasadena office.

“Jesse David is the perfect embodiment of everything this firm stands for – intellectually, culturally, and personally. I am very proud to pass the title of President to him,” Johnson said in the statement.

The statement added David and Johnson will remain full-time economic experts dedicated to serving Edgeworth’s clients through their consulting practices.

David is a leading expert in applying rigorous economic analysis for clients in antitrust, labor, and intellectual property matters. He has testified at trial and in deposition on more than 60 occasions where he showed his deep industry expertise and “the ability to clearly and effectively communicate complex analysis,” the company said.

David received his PhD in economics from Stanford University and his BA in Economics, with high distinction, from Brandeis University.

“I am honored to take on the role of President,” David said of his appointment. “John has built a premier consulting firm that combines rigorous economic analysis with the accessibility and reliability our clients appreciate. I look forward to building on these attributes.”

As CEO, Johnson will continue his focus on building the strategic vision of Edgeworth and setting the firm’s course for the future, the statement said.

Edgeworth’s clients include law firms, Fortune 500 companies, and government agencies. Its offices in Pasadena are located at 201 South Lake Avenue, Suite 308.
