David Noble is the founder of View Advisors, a consulting firm that works globally with CEOSs, their teams, select C-suite leaders, boards of directors, investors, and star athletes on leadership and strategy. He also serves as a senior adviser to Egon Zehnder, the Institute of Coaching, and Oliver Wyman Group and was previously on the management advisory board of TowerBrook Capital Partners, the first B Corp private equity fund.

In 2021 Noble was named by Thinkers50 as one of the world's top coaches.

He is also a member of the Marshall Goldsmith 100 Coaches community of leaders and coaches.

Noble brings a rare combination of leadership, strategic, and operating lenses to his advisory work, based on over three decades of experience as an operating executive, as well as a consultant to senior leaders. He has been a senior executive at RBC and Morgan Stanley, two of the world's best-run financial institutions, holding positions as varied as head of strategy, assistant chief economist, corporate banker, and CEO of the world's first digital retail bank, as well as head of the world's first digital brokerage. Subsequently, he spent several years on the executive committees at two global strategy consultancies: as a global practice leader at Kearney and as head of Asia Pacific at Oliver Wyman.

He became business partners with Carol Kauffman in 2015 when they began the novel "two-on-one” coaching method. Their goal was to bring their complementary experiences and approaches to the most complex leaders, who are often facing near-impossible goals and challenges. They have also worked together extensively at the top of the house with CEO team coaching, workshops, and leader-as-coach programs. The aim varies from increasing alignment and driving step changes in team dynamics to developing exponential thinking for innovation.

Noble is married and is based in Miami Beach, Florida, where he loves to swim as often as possible, and Hudson, New York, where he tends to his vegetables, berries, and orchard. He is also active in the not-for-profit world, supporting the arts, environmental advocacy, and land preservation.

David holds both an M.Sc. (international Management) from McGill University and an M.A. (Economics) from Queen's University.
