Principal, Technology & Digital
David has over ten years of executive search experience focused at board and leadership level. A member of the Technology and Digital Practice, David has extensive experience of leading and delivering search engagements to drive organisational transformation. He has a depth of experience in leading Technology, Digital and Transformation appointments across a breadth of sectors, globally.
After graduating in history & politics from the University of Birmingham, I commenced my career focusing upon board level appointments for public and private companies across a variety of sectors with a specific focus upon healthcare. My clients were characterised by being either distressed financially or operationally, or with a change agenda and required the leadership to enable that transformation. Fascinated by the potential and impact that technology has to transform businesses, I sought to transition my career to work with private sector firms who were embarking upon or leading transformation programmes; working with two leading boutique executive search businesses. I have worked on many international search engagements across Europe, North America and the Middle East for listed business and private equity clients and their portfolios. I joined Savannah in 2021.
Geographically agnostic, Savannah can reach the best talents across all sectors, functions and regions. This is increasingly important in the competitive globalised talent marketplace. I manage C-suite Technology, Digital and Innovation appointments for both listed businesses and VC and PE backed companies.
I am driven to surpass and delight the expectations of the clients and candidates that we work with. I really enjoy building longstanding relationships and being a trusted advisor.
Why I like working at Savannah
The passion of the Savannah team is truly inspiring. Savannah’s Technology and Digital practice is unparalleled in its network, knowledge and reputation. The business is highly client centric, and the depth of sector and functional expertise is world class.
