David was a regular customer of Quest’s team development services during the last ten years of his twenty year career with LloydsTSB and valued this activity so highly that he joined Quest in 2004.
After graduating from Durham University with a 1st class honours degree in geography, David joined LTSB’s accelerated management development programme. He held various senior positions there, most recently directing major change programmes. In the late 1990s he was responsible for the national rollout across the UK of all activities to support the newly merged LloydsTSB brand, a huge logistical exercise involving the re-badging, unifying and harmonisation of over 3000 sites, it even required a private Act of Parliament.
In his last role as Director, Group Business Transformation he invested over £0.5 billion in change activities across the UK and overseas. That enabled the achievement of sustainable efficiencies and radically reshaped both the cost base and customer offering.
He has extensive practical experience of general management and the designing and implementation of major change initiatives. He has a particular enthusiasm for the people side of change and expertise in assisting teams and individuals to realise their potential and unlock their discretionary energy.
David initiated LloydsTSB’s participation in the Microsoft UK Challenge inter-company team event in 1993 leading their first team, and starting LTSB’s growing involvement in subsequent years. He competed again in 2002 and was part of the LTSB winning team, and now leads Quest’s training programme for corporate teams entering this type of highly developmental activity.
A keen orienteer and adventure racer with wide experience and love of many outdoor activities, he has a passion for the creative enjoyment of the outdoors.
