Dave is a graduate of Accountancy & Law from UEA. He applied to be a trainee recruitment professional for what was then a small West End Finance recruiter, Marks Sattin.

Initially rejected 3 times (!) by the owner he finally talked his way into one of their first graduate vacancies. He repaid this opportunity by being appointed as Managing Director only 7 years later. Over the next 10 years he successfully led the business through adverse economic headwinds with good humour and a clear strategy, developing one of the strongest management teams in the industry. 

Dave starts Hedger Way as Co-founder alongside Tim Hedger, an ambition they’ve both held since first working together in the early days at Marks Sattin. Both excited at being able to construct a business based on clear principles and tailored to attract the best talent in the industry.  

Dave is a passionate and fast paced recruiter with an enviable client network and an encyclopaedic memory for candidate and contacts. Dave’s focus remains hiring for FC/FD/CFO & “Head of” roles across a range of industries with particular strength in the Property & FM, Technology, PE backed and Fast Growth SME sectors.  

When not meeting candidates and clients or glued to his phone, Dave spends time with his wife and 2 little girls Lily-Beth & Lexi. Given the chance he enjoys good food, and any opportunity to watch the cricket, football (ITFC) or horse racing.
