David is a current member of the ICAEW, qualifying in London with a Big Four accounting firm, an accredited mediator with the Society of Mediators, and a former member of the Institute For Turnaround.
Following practice life in London and Africa, David joined an industrial group and in his first FD position experienced the satisfaction of being on the inside during a highly successful manufacturing turnaround. As director at subsequent industrial reorganisations at CarnaudMetalbox and at Raleigh Industries he defined his future as an agent for change in business restructuring and financial performance improvement while broadening his personal skill base and taking on MD and FD positions on invitation of banks and investors.
Since discovering the power of mediation, David elected to qualify in 2017 and is in the process of building Embrace Mediation to broaden understanding in business of the effectiveness of mediation as the wise alternative to litigation, and to utilise his business background to deliver truly effective resolution of financial disputes.

I love to spend time walking or cycling with friends and family and taking full advantage of the fantastic countryside and coast which is so easy to reach from our Lancaster home. I've been involved in local affairs and, in particular, the management of Lancaster Royal Grammar School; Lancaster Golf Club; and Citizen's Advice Bureau. Running was a passion but, in the end, London Marathon training caused something to crack so I've rediscovered the pleasure of my road bike - one of the last hand build titanium-framed from the Raleigh RSP workshop in Nottingham. Travel off the beaten track is also a keen interest.
David is based in Lancaster and covers the North of England and International assignments
