“With any testimonial I believe it is important that the reader is given some context in which it is given. My current portfolio of Chairmanships within the sector, when combined, add up to an entity that has a turnover approaching£500m; NFI of over £120m and EBITDA of c£30m and over the years I have been on the Board of more than a dozen recruitment industry organisations.
Turning to David, I have known him for close to 20 years since he was a senior consultant and have acted as both a formal and informal mentor to him over the years. It is fair to say that David has grown to be an accomplished MD within the sector and a proven business leader. He has the rare mix of having both good strategic thinking capability and strong operational delivery skills. I particularly admire his commitment to looking at issues from the client's perspective and tailoring solutions accordingly.
I would recommend him to almost any business in the sector. He will work with you; he will challenge you but always deliver for you.
P.S. He's also a nice guy and fun to work with - which should not be underestimated in choosing an adviser.”
