Dave joined Baringa in 2001 and is a Partner in the Markets and Trading practice, focusing on Commodities Trading and Risk Management. Prior to joining Baringa, Dave initially worked as a consultant in the deregulating European Energy markets mostly focused on the customer business, and has since expanded his focus across most of the energy and commodities value chain.
Through this time, Dave has accumulated many years of business transformation experience as a consequence of his clients entering new markets, striving for increased process efficiency and being involved in merger and acquisition activity. Working for many of Europe's leading trading organisations, this has led to various aspects of systems delivery, process and organisational change. Activities have spanned across front, mid and back-office operations and include tradable energy and bulk commodity products. Dave's European clients over the recent years cover energy companies, commodity trading houses and investment banks, including Vattenfall, Centrica Energy, RBS, E.ON, Cargill, BG Group, British Energy, bp and others.
Dave lives with his wife and daughters near Wokingham, UK. His spare time is taken up playing guitar (albeit largely for his own entertainment!) and enjoys skiing with his family (conversely, largely for the entertainment of those who happen to be watching!)
