InfoA native of Appalachian Ohio whose father came to the United States as a
refugee from Germany after World War II, David Wilhelm has pursued a
career spanning the worlds of politics, business, labor, and public interest
groups. The common thread throughout has been a commitment to the ideal of
economic growth for all.
Wilhelm is the founder and president of Woodland Venture Management, a
company that raises and invests private equity funds targeting high-growth
businesses in the American Midwest and central Appalachian region. With $130
million under management, Woodland has become one of the nation's leading
sources of capital in the underserved regions of the country that lie between the
coasts.
In 1992, Wilhelm served as national manager of the Clinton/Gore campaign and was subsequently named
Chair of the Democratic National Committee, becoming the youngest person in the history of either
national party to serve in that capacity. He has managed the campaigns of U.S. Senators Paul Simon and
Joseph Biden as well as Chicago Mayor Richard Daley. In 2002, Wilhelm chaired Rod Blagojevich's
campaign for Illinois Governor and, upon his election, directed his transition. Wilhelm served as chair of
the Illinois campaign of John Kerry and John Edwards in 2004.
