About David

David is a Principal at Arthur D. Little, based in our Cambridge office in the United Kingdom.

Building on a strong technical background acquired in a development environment, David has been working in safety and risk management for over 20 years, principally in the rail sector, but also in the highways, chemicals and defense arenas. Clients include most major rail suppliers and a number of rail-operator organizations.

Projects have included both the development and streamlining of safety management systems, project delivery evaluation (i.e., Will the project succeed or fail?) and numerous safety-critical system assessments. 

Such projects typically require detailed analysis, clear presentation of arguments and engagement with senior management/stakeholders.

As well as working with UK clients, David has managed projects with clients in Singapore, Hong Kong, Canada, France, Belgium, Germany and India.

Outside of work, David is a keen amateur singer and a member of the local Triathlon club.
