In his last role at ICI, he was the CFO of the Chemicals and Polymers division based in the U.S. He was also part of the core team that developed the strategy for repositioning ICI from a commodity to specialty chemical company.

    David has considerable international management and client service experience. He has lived and worked in Europe and led engagements in Asia. He has spoken regularly about business strategy, M&A, performance management, governance and the innovative application of digital technology at various industry conferences in Europe, Asia and North America.
