Battle-Tested, Pennsylvania True


Dave McCormick was born in Pittsburgh and raised in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, where he spent the summers baling hay and trimming Christmas trees on his family and neighboring farms. During his high school years, he put the strength he learned working on the farm to work on the mat and on the football field as a varsity wrestler and linebacker at Bloomsburg High School.

Dave was appointed to the United States Military Academy at West Point, where he graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering. While at West Point, Dave was a four-time letterman on the Army wrestling team and a co-captain his senior year.


Upon receiving his commission as a 2nd Lieutenant, Dave attended Airborne School and Ranger School, where he graduated with honors at one of the toughest schools in the Army. Dave was assigned to the Army’s All-American 82nd Airborne Division, where he was in the first wave of American troops sent into Iraq during the Persian Gulf War in 1991. His unit was tasked with clearing minefields and destroying enemy munitions, and he was awarded the Bronze Star.


After receiving his Ph.D. in international affairs from Princeton in 1996, Dave came home to Pittsburgh, where he joined and worked his way up to lead a cutting-edge technology company called FreeMarkets, which created 600 jobs in Pittsburgh and played an important role in Pittsburgh’s renaissance. Still reeling from the death of the steel industry, Pittsburgh proved that anything is possible if you refuse to give up. Dave went on to apply this lesson throughout his business career.


In 2005, Dave continued his service to our country as Under Secretary of Commerce for Industry and Security, before going on to be named Deputy National Security Adviser for International Economic Policy. From 2007-2009, Dave served as Under Secretary of the Treasury for International Affairs. As one of our country’s top negotiators, Dave stood up for the United States by going toe-to-toe with our adversaries, implementing tough sanctions and regulations necessary to protect America’s interests.


After spending 13 years serving our country as a combat soldier and government official, this favorite son of Bloomsburg went on to join and eventually lead Bridgewater Associates, one of the most successful investment management companies in the world, where he eventually became Co-CEO and then sole Chief Executive Officer in 2020. During his time at Bridgewater, the business more than doubled in size, and David led the firm in its transition from a founder-led boutique to professionally managed institution.


Service has remained a way of life for Dave. He has served as a trustee for the United Service Organizations (USO), the Alexander Hamilton Society, and Carnegie Mellon University. Dave and his wife Dina also support a wide range of charitable causes.

Pennsylvania has a history of being a leader—and showing the rest of the country the way forward. Many Pennsylvanians have told Dave it’s time for the Keystone State to be a leader again to restore the promise of the American Dream.  Many Pennsylvanians believe Dave McCormick is the battle-tested, Pennsylvania true, fighter we need to get the job done.
