David

Sales Director

David joined us upon his return from New Zealand in 2009, where he had spent some years in specialist lighting sales. As can been seen from the caption, New Zealand can have an effect on some peopleā€¦ On David it was particularly harsh.

David is our specialist for Advanced Area Lighting products, and also looks after customers in Eastern England. Some have unkindly said that his recruitment was akin to scraping the barrel. We would like to refute that slur in the strongest possible terms: It was more like collecting the remnants left after the barrel had already been scraped, three times.

David's favourite thing about Peli UK...

"Being a member of the Peli family."

What the rest of the team said his favourite thing is...

"Driving home."
