With an interest in architecture, David Bozell started looking for colleges based on their architecture programs. What he found were programs steeped in traditional methods. While meeting with Prof. Terry Burton at Purdue, however, Bozell began to see how new technologies could be applied to such a program.
His success in the classroom — as a student, teaching assistant, and professor — has created a solid foundation for his Lafayette-based business, CG Visions Inc.
Through hard work and integrity, values he learned from his father, Bozell has built his business over 10 years to serve clients around the world. The building construction consulting firm has been recognized three times by ConstrucTech magazine: in 2007 as a company to watch, and in 2008 as a technology enabler and one of 10 Hottest Companies.
Just as his professors fostered his talent, Bozell has a passion for teaching and seeing students grow in their career choices. While nurturing his business, Bozell has been a professor and guest lecturer in the College of Technology, teaching architectural graphics courses.
Bozell is an active member of the National Association of Home Builders and the Builders Association of Greater Lafayette. He and his company have been supporters of Purdue’s computer graphics program and Habit for Humanity.
Bozell and his wife, Rachel, live in Lafayette with their four children.
