David is no stranger to foodservice, having first worked in the equipment industry as a teenager, helping out at Falcon Catering Equipment in the marketing department during his school summer holidays. He would eventually join the company on a permanent basis in 1997, firstly working as a distribution clerk and latterly as sales estimator. He remained until 2002, when he took a break out from the industry, before returning to foodservice as a sales representative with Catering Supplies & Repairs in 2005. It was here he developed his sales skills, going on to manage the sales department, before leaving to join ScoMac Catering Equipment.
Here, as part of a four-man sales team, David honed his product knowledge and developed strong relationships with customers and suppliers/manufacturers, travelling throughout Scotland working on a number of different projects.
