Shipping is in David’s blood. Early in his career, he worked for P&O, one of the largest UK ship-owners at the time. He has worked in London and beyond, including Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Colombo and Aden. In 1981 David founded DSB Offshore Ltd, bringing together a family of expert shipbrokers who have since operated in a great variety of different markets, facilitating the sale and charter of countless offshore vessels.
David retired in December 2015, handing over the helm to his son, Roland. He remains very much a part of the DSB family.
David has been a trustee at AGE UK, Westminster since 2020.
