After serving a 5 year apprenticeship in engineering David moved into sales, working for Swish Products, a well-known brand leader in curtain track suspension systems.
After 10 years working as Area Sales Manager, David moved across into the newly formed Building Products Division as Sales Manager, promoting maintenance-free Roofline products and trims for the window industry.
In 1990 David joined a small extrusion company as Sales Manager, promoting similar products to Swish, Eurocell Building Products, where he helped to achieve a huge turnover for the company and huge expansions across the UK, retiring in 2008.
Since retiring, David has dedicated his free time to fundraising for muscular dystrophy causes - in particular setting up charity events such as pub quiz nights and bridge drives. Every year he has held a Charity Golf Day which has generated around £100,000 for muscular dystrophy charities.
His hobbies include playing bridge, and watching cricket - attending games at Worcester- and spending time with his two grandsons.
