Together with his sister and fellow managing director, Linda, David oversees the smooth running of Grocontinental. He has specific responsibility for the strategic development of the company, including investment in infrastructure and innovation across the business.
David also works closely with Commercial Director, Hugh Jones, managing customer relationships.
David joined the company in 1980 after leaving school and spending a year travelling and working in Australia. His introduction to the family business was as a driver, swiftly moving from cattle haulage to driving HGVs.
In 1983 David embarked on a career in the Transport Office, ascending to the role of Joint Managing Director by 1995.
David lives with his wife Kirsty and their three children in North Shropshire. A sports enthusiast and Everton FC devotee, David enjoys cricket, football and golf - he once had a very respectable handicap of 10.
His other passion is the farming of his herd of Hereford and Aberdeen Angus cattle.
