“I believe strongly in Scottish independence as the best way forward for the people of Scotland and probably the rest of the UK too.”

David is executive chairman of a growing £8m turnover software company, now headquartered in Stirling since he relocated it from Newcastle.

Born in London with Scottish roots, he also sits on the Advisory Board of Napier University’s Institute for Digital Innovation & Informatics and he is past Chair and current director of ScotlandIS – trade body for Scotland’s Digital Technology Industries.

David, who has an MBA from Cranfield and is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, has spent most of his career in technology (public and private companies in top management) in the USA, but also in Canada, Germany, France, England and  South Africa.

“I believe strongly in Scottish independence as the best way forward for the people of Scotland and probably the rest of the UK too,” says David.

“Scotland is a nation with a different culture, different infrastructure needs, different approach to social policy than SE England, and I fervently believe that you need decision makers accessible and close to the result of their actions to make the best decisions.”
