David currently lives in Shropshire with his wife and has 3 grown up daughters and two grandchildren. A passionate qualified Engineer, David has been with Hexagon since 2002 taking on a Director & General Management role. In this time he has been heading up the growth of the UK business as well as a secondment period into Northern Europe.
Hexagon has ambition in its genes and so the transformation during this period has been exciting and fast paced driven by a combination of technology acquisitions and organic growth. The shape of the business is changing rapidly to accommodate a new digital data driven World. The current business is defined as Manufacturing Intelligence where Hexagon support the UK manufacturing customers, big and small, with the latest metrology technologies and strategies that enable them to ensure they are best positioned to remain competitive, innovative and effective. Silverstone Park strategies are very much in line with these core drivers.
David uses these favourite mantras in business and private:
If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got
You can’t change the direction of the wind – but you can change the sails
The effect you have on others is your highest currency in life.
It isn’t things that disturb you, it’s what you think that makes it so.
