A Unilever Engineer born and bred.
In his 34-year career at Unilever, Dave has been exposed to every level of Engineering – starting as an Apprentice, he has worked within Factory, Regional and Global Teams. His experience spanning the entire Engineering landscape makes him an ideal leader of the 8,000 strong Engineering organisation.
His belief that ‘no one wins or loses alone’ has instilled a strong sense of collaboration and community in his teams.
Dave is passionate about exploring new technologies to deliver efficiencies and value across Engineering, and the wider business. This was evident when he recently presented at the Microsoft Inspire event, on the power of Digital Twins and how they are revolutionizing the factory environment.
Dave lives in North Wales with his wife and two sons. He is an avid Land Rover fan, owning two Defenders and a Discovery. He spends time fishing and restoring things – from old clocks to tractors.
Dave has a 1st Class Honors Degree in Electrical Power & Control Engineering.
