About David Opermann

David W. Oppermann founded Nationwide Intelligence in 1987. At that time he owned several travel agencies in mid-Michigan and realized there was no single source from which to obtain "travel alerts" especially for his corporate travelers. As a previous publisher of national newsletters on other topics, he readily took on the role of Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of the bi-weekly Travel Alert Bulletin and the comprehensive yet concise Briefings on Airlines, Airports, and Cities. He authored the 6-page Bulletin every two-weeks from 1987 though June, 2006…a total of 478 issues of strategic travel information for Nationwide Intelligence clients including numerous Fortune 500 companies.
