Nick Savage – MD NP Strategic Workforce Resourcing

“David underpinned the confident, make it happen, client-focused culture that is a hallmark of NP Group’s growth and success.  As a Managing Director reporting to David, I found him to be a results orientated leader; while supportive in the way he allowed me the freedom to grow my business.  He is a successful business operator, with real financial flair. He is an accomplished networker, professional operator and very focused on client delivery. 


David has a vast amount of experience of crafting and building interim and permanent global recruitment solutions in both good and bad economic times, and would be an enormous asset to any business looking for advisory, leadership or delivery services.”

“David is one of the most focussed and supportive COO’s that I have had the pleasure to work with. Not only has he demonstrated excellent judgement, vision, management and leadership to the company at large, David has personally been instrumental to my career and has given me much mentoring and support, often taking a pastoral care in my well being. He has helped to motivate me to surpass organisational and sales objectives and has been a pillar of strength and direction. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work alongside him.”

Mark Sparrow – MD NP Group AsiaPac

“David has been one of the most impactful professionals I have worked with. It is very rare to find an individual with so much versatility an authenticity; he is an accomplished and driven salesperson, a fearless leader, a wise and patient mentor, a complex problem solver, a challenging disciplinarian and fierce friend all in one package, underpinned with a crystal clear communication style, rock solid values and sharp sense of humour.

My business and indeed myself personally, have benefitted significantly from his input over the years and I would not hesitate to endorse his credentials to any company seeking to better itself or reach peak performance.”

Eddie Halkett – MD EMEA & Latin America, Engineering & Technology at Earthstream

 “I have had the pleasure of working with Dave on a couple of separate occasions. He is part of a rare breed of individual that operates with compete integrity and sincerity; he does not set an expectation unless he can deliver – he can be trusted.

He makes sure that he becomes a true expert in the markets in which he operates and aligns himself with clients where he can offer true value and make a meaningful difference.

In my experience Dave has the ability to transfer these principles to the people around him and whilst he demands the highest standards his inclusive approach to leadership draws the best out of people (personally & professionally). He is insightful and considered, any business advise that he offers will unquestionably be centred in his personal ambition to do something that’s productive and beneficial for the people that he encounters.”

Ben Cowan – Director - Change Solutions, Banking at Investigo

“David supported me during my transition from Biller to Manager - and provided me with the direction, advice, techniques and approach to become a competent and well rounded people and sales manager. He allowed me to nurture and develop my "upward management" style to make it more effective. I found his guidance and influence to be of great benefit.”

Nik Patel – Director, NP Group

David has the ability to not only develop business strategies and execute the delivery; but has the uncanny knack of getting the best out of his staff. As a boss, he allows you to express yourself and impose your own ideas on the business resulting in excellent development. David will push for what he believes in and balances hard work and dedication with humour and fun.”
