David was first introduced to PDS when the business supplied labels to his then employer, Wollaston-based Scott Bader, a global manufacturer of adhesive and resins. David spent nearly 20 years at the company and his only other previous job had been helping out with his father’s ground maintenance business. David eventually became a process operator in charge of a small plant producing pigment paste that adds the colour to the paint used by the marine industry to protect the hulls of boats and ships.
Six and half years ago, David joined PDS to take on a new challenge and learn about the print sector, becoming an account executive, looking after the requirements of his clients and making sure that incoming enquiries and orders are fulfilled accurately and on time. David said, “The career transition was made easier as I already knew many of the existing PDS team as friends or through football and school. I have always enjoyed the friendly family atmosphere at PDS.”
In his spare time, David keeps fit in the gym and enjoys a round of golf. An avid football fan and former player, David is kept on his toes by his eldest daughter, Maisey who plays for Milton Keynes Dons and is hoping to win a scholarship to a college in the USA. His youngest daughter, Alice is a keen dancer who is hoping to make her mark in the world of performing arts.
