Non Executive Director and Chair of Audit Committee (currently on sabbatical)

David joined Sirona in 2011 and has been Chair of the Audit Committee until August 2014 when he took a sabbatical to spend a year in Albania helping to set up a school for young children.
David graduated from the University of Liverpool with a Bachelor of Commerce (Hons) following which he went on to train with a top firm of Chartered Accountants where he gained his accountancy qualification. During his career he has worked in many aspects of finance and became the Finance Director of Wilts Wholesale Electrical Co Limited in 1988 – the largest independent electrical wholesaler in the UK, operating from over 60 branches from its head office in Trowbridge. David was appointed Managing Director in 1996 and steered the company through a successful period of growth through a number of acquisitions, increasing its turnover during this period to over £100 million. He stepped down as Managing Director in December 2010, but remains on the Wilts Board as a non- executive director.

David has lived in Bathampton since 1988 and is married with three children. He is Chair of the Bath Foodbank charity, which provides emergency food for Bath families in crisis. David stays in contact with us from Albania and will be returning to Sirona in 2015.
