David was around at the inception of Investors In Community, when we were looking at a way of bringing together businesses and community groups.

Having worked in finance since leaving school, he was aware of how many businesses had an aspiration for community awareness but without any easy way of joining up their strategies with cohesive action; so the IIC platform was an ideal solution.

Personally, he is passionate about community engagement and has been active in both his own community and a number of charities for many years.
