David Perry and Associates

Welcome To David Perry & Associates

DPA isn’t just a business, it’s a family—that keeps growing as our company expands  into exciting, new platforms. It started as a one-man direct marketing agency in 1990. But after launching my first branded magazine for a high-end jewelry retailer, I knew I had found my calling as a custom publisher. I love the luxury industry, and I love bringing stories to life. Now, in my 10th year of producing The Magazine for independent jewelers around the country, the staff has grown to include a team of top journalists. The newest member of the crew is my wife, Sue Millar Perry, who after a long career in women’s magazines has joined DPA as Content Director. Meet Sue and the rest of our family below.
