David Marsden, Co‑Founder & Acquisitions Director
What do you do for us?
My role at the Technology Group is to find the right type and size of companies for us to acquire, to negotiate the purchase price and to work with a small team internally in completing all the due diligence work required. Once the acquisition is completed, to work with my colleague directors and department heads to ensure the smooth integration of the staff and clients into the company. I also work closely with Jonathan in developing the direction of the company.
What did you do before you joined us?
Jonathan and I were involved in the running of one of the Admiral Group businesses before it was sold to Nine Telecom.
What do you like about The Technology Group?:
The Technology Group is great because we are very customer focused, the phrase big enough to cope, small enough to care really applies with us. The team is a great asset to the business and I think our clients can tell everyone here really enjoys their role, and understands what we are trying to achieve.
Describe your personality in three words?:
Understanding, generous, never gives in (oops that's 5)
Top three things you love:
Family, holidays & more holidays!
I am a keen runner, I try to raise as much money through sponsorship as I can for MND (Motor Neurone Disease) my marathon and half marathon running has taken me all over the world, though the London marathon is still the best! Running is great to have some down time too, no phones, or distractions, just you and your favourite music.
In 2016 I enjoyed fundraising for Leeds Mencap, by taking part in a Sahara Desert Trek! This year my fundraising challenge has been to take on the three peaks for MND.
