“When I think of Southwest, I think convenient, ontime, and rewarding.”
—David Kouba, co-owner, Tower Technology, Inc.
Just like Southwest Airlines, David Kouba connects people to what’s important to them. While Southwest gets Customers from point A to point B, David analyzes cellphone towers and their performance to ensure that people are connected to family, friends, and work associates through their mobile device networks. David travels all over the country. Most of his business trips are quick ones—he sometimes leaves his home in Kansas City, Missouri, and returns the same day—and he depends on Southwest’s ontime service to get the job done.
Flight Perk: “I love the Companion Pass, which I earned by using the Southwest Chase Visa credit card and taking a few flights a year. I can bring a family member or a friend to enjoy the trip with me.”
Best Advice: “Get busy living; you know what the alternative is.”
Top Destination: “Portland, Oregon. There is so much to do around the area—Mount Hood for skiing, the Columbia River Gorge with Multnomah Falls for some of the best hiking and scenery, and the wineries to the south for the best pinot noir in the country.”
Family Time: “I coached my kids in football, soccer, basketball, and baseball. Now that they’re older, we still play golf and tennis—I usually lose.”
