Shortly after qualifying (FCCA) David started his career in the technology space with Tandem Computers, after which he went on to co-found one of the very first digital-imaging software houses – Imagesolve. After a successful trade sale there he enjoyed FD positions in tech/software businesses: US-based FileNet Corp and then Staffware Group in the UK.
Since 2005, David has been working as a portfolio FD with several fast-growth tech start-ups, helping with strategy, financial planning, mentoring and support. David is an active member of The ScaleUp Group, and came onboard with the Ethel team in the summer of 2021.
He can be found most days walking the Zac the retriever with his wife Gill, and regularly at Watford Football club cheering on the Yellow Army with his sons and grandchildren.
