He is also engaged with Cranfield University in the development of Through-life Engineering Services (TES) to maximise lifetime value for products, capital assets and infrastructure.
When he has spare time, David volunteers for the IET providing support as an IET mentor, professional registration interviewer, Fellow application assessor and sits on their Registration and Standards Committee.
He is married with two children and enjoys the contrast of sharing time between his homes on the south coast, where he plays golf and Lake District where he enjoys hill walking.
