Hosted by the College of Business and Entrepreneurship, featuring three presenters. Dave Alpern, the President of Joe Gibbs Racing, and David and Jason Benham, Co-founders of the Benham Companies.

Tickets available now in the School of Theatre Box Office.

Dave Alpern
Dave Alpern began his career with Joe Gibbs Racing in 1993 as an unpaid
intern. He had held nearly every position in the front office including
overseeing consumer products, communications, and sponsorship before
being named team President. He has seen the team grow from 18
employees to over 600. Alpern is one of the longest tenured sports executives in NASCAR and
has worked with C-Level executives of many of the country’s largest companies such as
Toyota, FedEx, Mars, Stanley, The Coca- Cola Company, and Comcast. Dave has been invited
to the White House on four occasions after winning NASCAR Championships in 2000, 2002,
2005 and 2015.
Dave published his first book, Taking the Lead, about faith and leadership with Tyndale
Publishers in June 2021.

David and Jason Benham
David Benham and his identical twin brother, Jason, are known as
the Benham brothers. They have created and developed several
profitable businesses around the world, and are currently two of
the most in-demand Christian business speakers in the country.
Their first company grew to 100 locations in 35 states and has
been recognized by dozens of publications, including: Inc.
Magazine, Entrepreneur Magazine, the Wall Street Journal,
Business Leader Media, and many others. David and Jason
were also named Ernst & Young Entrepreneurs of the Year Finalists in 2012.
In 2014 the brothers signed a straight-to-series reality show with HGTV to host a new show
called “Flip It Forward” in the fall of 2014. They were subsequently catapulted onto the national
scene when the show was abruptly cancelled due to their commitment to traditional Christ-
centered values.
The brothers’ umbrella company, Benham Companies, provides value in multiple spheres of the
marketplace, including real estate management/sales, business consulting, tax planning,
technology resource development, social entrepreneur creation, movie production, and global
efficiency development. The companies’ core values of Breathe Life, Produce Value, and Be
Faithful in the Little Things are key to the Benham Companies success. David and Jason serve
as Co- Chairmen and Founders of the Benham Foundation and Cities4Life, where their
dedicated commitment to helping others continues through Pro-Life ministry, Human-
Trafficking Prevention, and Caring for widows, orphans, and the poor. They also pioneered a
new missions concept called “Missioneering”, which creates self-sustaining revenue models for
overseas missions.
David is the author of five books: Expert Ownership, Whatever the Cost, Living among Lions,
Miracle in Shreveport, and Bold and Broken.
