James David Stewart
David Stewart, an expert in landscape and pool design, has been in the Arizona pools and landscapes industry since 1981. It all started when he founded New Image as a means for employment while studying to be a civil engineer; however, what started as a way to make a few extra bucks quickly turned into a lifelong career when he discovered his natural aptitude at designing and constructing all forms of pool and landscape projects. So, as the industry evolved and demands changed, David worked hard to continue his education, all while developing New Image into the company that it is today. He secured his C-21 Landscape and Irrigation license in 1985, built many pools between 1985 and 2008—eventually securing his B-5 Swimming Pool Contractor License in 2008—and created many professional relationships in the industry that would help New Image flourish into one of the top Arizona pools and landscape design companies. Even with the economic downturn in 2009, David was still able to expand New Image by switching the business focus to the maintenance and service side of the industries to weather the storm.
Today, he continues to evolve New Image to assure the success and longevity of New Image Landscape and Pools, all so he may deliver valley residents the highest quality services in the Arizona pools and landscape industry. He is excited about the opportunities that lie before him, and he truly looks forward to diversifying the New Image brand. But, more than anything else, he looks forward to providing many more years of satisfied clients throughout the state of Arizona.

My family and I moved to the Valley in 1999 from North Platte, NE. I was hired to work as the Education Director for Washburn Pianos. After setting up the teaching studios, including methodologies, and hiring teachers I was promoted to Commercial/Residential Leasing Manager and Collections Manager. In 2005 Arizona Keyboard Acceptance Company was formed by the owners of Washburn and I became the Assistant Vice President of Finance as well as keeping up my other duties for Washburn Piano. I created processes and forms that were utilized in both Arizona Keyboard Acceptance Company and Washburn Piano. I stayed at Washburn until they closed their doors in 2009. I then went to work for My First Piano as their Office Manager and Bookkeeper. It was a startup company that was owned by one of the salesmen from Washburn Piano. Again, I set up processes and forms and help to develop office procedures that are still being used today.
I have just enough accounting and QuickBooks experience and skills to get the job done, but by no means am I a “NINJA”. My customer skills and willingness to investigate and resolve issues is my forte. I am mostly OCD, (as most bookkeepers are), somewhat outspoken, and I am always truthful, (not always a good thing). I work well in most situations and get along well with most people. I try to always have a smile in my voice, but sometimes the Dragon Lady does show up.
