What I Do
David is a great Non Exec Director. His experience as an entrepreneur really helps him to understand the needs and challenges of running a small and fast growing business, and he is very entrepreneur friendly.
The relationship between CEO and Chairman is a crucial one and David strikes just the right balance. Supporting yet challenging, he keeps us looking forward as a board. His experience of scaling online businesses is invaluable.
I can't thank David enough for his support and guidance as Chairman of Love Home Swap, he is simply brilliant at managing the balance in a high growth business between detail, vision and governance. Please feel free to contact me directly for a more detailed reference.
We feel really fortunate to have David as an NED in our business. The range of experience across major brands over the last 20 years is unparalleled and has been vital in helping set the vision for Simply Business. More importantly, his integrity, humility and quality of intellect set him apart from many who have had success in the world of the internet. It also helps he has a strong moral compass that drives all of his decisions. I can't recommend him highly enough.
DK joined the Prezola board as Chairman in 2017 following investment from BGF. He helped to double revenues in just two years, while adding professionalism and rigor to the day-to-day business. Instrumental in identifying, negotiating and executing our successful exit in 2019 he was an invaluable asset throughout. Moreover, a great guy to work with; insightful, encouraging and good fun.
David is a great Chairman at Love Home Swap. He combines attention to detail with strategy, and is an excellent support for any CEO.
