“I have known Dave for many years initially as a business client and later as a colleague when his company was bought into the Beacon Group. Dave is a dynamic leader who is passionate about his business and focussed on achieving results.

Simon Goldthorpe

, Director, The Beacon Group (colleague)
worked with you

“I worked with Dave while at The Beacon Group. Dave ran one of the divisional companies in the mortgage packaging industry. It was a highly competitive market at the time that led to many casualties. Dave’s skill as MD was reflected in the success of that business and it became one of the most profitable in the sector. Equally, when there was a catastrophic downturn in the mortgage market, he managed the downsizing process quickly and very effectively while others around were crashing. He is single-minded and makes things happen. He challenges the status quo whilst being a seriously pragmatic entrepreneur. He’s an engaging character and I wouldn’t hesitate to work with him again.” November 4, 2011

“I had the pleasure of working with dave when he was at MD nationwide. His knowledge of the mortgage industry was extensive as was his network of business contacts.
