Dave has been involved in highways maintenance and construction activities for almost 40 years. His
vast experience is based on owning and operating his own small civils business through to the role of
Managing Director at one of the UK’s largest contractors.

Whilst Dave has direct experience of operating at board level in an international business he prides
himself on his ability to relate to the tier 2 and 3 contractors who are responsible for the majority of
work delivered on the strategic and local road network. He has personally helped many tier 2/3
contractors to ‘keep pace’ by mentoring and coaching their senior teams to ensure the way they
operate remains aligned with client objectives.

Dave has spent time living and working in Australia at the Managing Director level and held a board
position on a JV which represented the largest provider of highway services in the whole of Australia
with main operations on both the east and west coast.

In recent years Dave has had the lead role in a multimillion pound turnover business for functions
and services covering bid development, Smart Motorway delivery, Major Projects Delivery, local
authority maintenance contracts and highways maintenance responsibilities covering approximately
1/3 rd of the strategic road network.
