Dave Underhill
Dave Underhill is a media and business consultant in Portsmouth NH, past president of the Portsmouth NH Rotary Club (2013-2014) and of the Brattleboro VT Rotary Club (District 7870, 1989-1990).

His broadcasting and publishing career began in Boston (WGBH-TV, WBZ-TV, WCVB-TV). He and his wife Linda met while working at WBZ, and later moved to Vermont, where they owned and operated community-service radio stations WKVT AM & FM from 1983-1994. After joining the Brattleboro Rotary Club in 1984, he served on the board, as club Secretary and club President, then chaired the club’s Gateway Foundation. In 1994, he was part of a pilot team that traveled to El Salvador to develop clean-water projects.

Dave’s Rotary service was interrupted when his career took him to Tribune Company in Chicago as a senior executive in broadcasting, cable and internet publishing. He and Linda returned to New England, settling in Portsmouth in 2006; their son Graeme, daughter-in-law Heather and grand-dog Tela live in nearby Raymond NH.

Dave has chaired Portsmouth Rotary’s Interact, Finance and Foundation committees as well as the board of directors. He is a member of Rotary’s Bequest Society and a Major Donor member of the Paul Harris Society.

In addition to his Rotary service, he does non-profit fundraising work and serves as a volunteer small-business mentor for SCORE. Dave was born in upstate New York, and is a graduate of Phillips Exeter Academy (NH) and Boston University, with a B.S. in Broadcasting and Film. When he’s not immersed in Rotary, you may find him with his chef’s hat on, or perhaps driving golf balls into the boulders and trees of New Hampshire, Maine or Prince Edward Island.
