David’s career has been extensive and varied, working for some of the largest companies in their fields as well as supporting the owners of a range of small and medium sized business across a wide variety of sectors. His experience reaches well beyond the traditional Finance Director remit, he also has expertise in operational management and contract negotiations.
One of David’s biggest achievements to date was to instigate and lead a management buyout of Quattro Plant Ltd. His leadership then took the company to new heights, becoming the 29th fastest growing private company in the UK as listed in the Sunday Times, BDO Profit Trak 100. He secured funding of £24m which replaced much more risky funding and, also, raised £12m to facilitate an acquisition.
David’s skill base doesn’t end there. He has worked with a portfolio of companies as diverse as a start-up internet dating agency to a foreign exchange broker with a £200m turnover. He has worked across a broad range of sectors including rail, retail, distribution, manufacturing and information technology (hardware & software).
David is serious and diligent in his work but also brings a dry, self-deprecating sense of humour that makes working with him a pleasure.
