Away from the office David most enjoys spending time with his family. Weekends are often spent as chauffeur, arbitrator and financier to his two teenage boys!

David is an avid sports fan, with varying degrees of participating and spectating on many sports but particularly football and motorsport. As members of the greatest football club in the world, David and his family are keen visitors to the Theatre of Dreams!

To relax, he particularly enjoys cycling, which helps clear the mind and re-charge the batteries. In the past he has cycled through many mountainous parts of Europe including the Alps, and the Pyrenees.
