What is your name and current position?
David Torres, Senior Product Manager for 5Cast


How long have you been employed at Forecast5?I have been here for 3 years.

What office are you based out of?
I am based out of the home office in Naperville, Illinois.

Why did you join Forecast5?
Forecast5’s commitment to excellence and elevated sense of purpose to developing analytical tools for schools and other governmental agencies, is compelling. F5 offered me an amazing opportunity to direct my educational and financial leadership skills and knowledge to assisting in the development of 5Cast and 5Cast Plus. 5Cast is awesome! The occasion to present this suite of products to financial leaders across the country is both a challenge and privilege. Love the challenge, love the Team, “are you guys ready? Let’s roll!” 
(Todd Beamer, 9/11/2001)

What is the most interesting or favorite part of your job?
The creative and empowering culture here at F5 is truly unique. Great people, great vision and great giftedness. I have learned new things everyday….can’t wait till tomorrow. I am passionate about seeing others grow, and believe that we can all “excel still more” to better equip leaders for improved productivity and response to challenges. I love being a part of growing the F5 team. We have the nucleus of being a championship team!

What are some cool projects you’ve seen our clients do with F5 products?
During the course of my career, I often quoted the legendary catchphrase of ‘Hannibal’ Smith from the old TV series The A-Team: “I love it when a plan comes together.” For many of our clients, I believe they could apply the phrase to their negotiation planning and strategies, with 5Sight and 5Cast, in a heartily proclaimed SUCCESS!   Success in planning and outcome attributed to their use of 5Sight and 5Cast. I so appreciate hearing how clients are now able to quickly generate key 5Sight strategic benchmark analytics and comparatives of economic agreement terms with ease and have direct links to their 5Cast financial forecast and “at-the-table” functionality to provide immediate scenario comparability of negotiations proposals. That is very cool!

What is your favorite movie/book/music?
Favorite movie: Gladiator - favorite quote:  "Brothers, what we do in life... echoes in eternity."
Favorite book: Bible – An amazing story of redemption.
Favorite music genre: Contemporary Christian

Tell us one interesting fact about yourself?
I am a wrestler….I hate to lose!
