David joined the Tharsus Board as Chairman at the end of 2012.
His background as CEO of Serimax, which he grew from €30m to €150m along with his current role as Chairman of Frog Capital, mean that David has the skills and experience necessary to guide the Tharsus board as the business evolves and grows rapidly over the coming years.
Serimax is a global specialist oil and gas welding service company, which means he understands the complexities and challenges facing Tharsus as the business continues to develop and grow from traditional sheet metal basher to leader in the original equipment design and manufacture sector.
David also spent 17 years at 3i and so is ideally placed to navigate future funding requirements.
David is very focused on managing people and creating the correct structures so that they understand their responsibilities but are also encouraged to identify and seek new opportunities.
David is a keen outdoor sportsman, sailing competitively and competing the last two Saunders Mountain Marathons.
