Born and bred in Harborne, Birmingham, David began a career in catering, starting in the kitchen washing dishes and working his way up to become head chef. A desire to open his own restaurant saw David make the decision to go into the building industry, as a scaffolder, in order to earn enough money to save for the day he could establish his own restaurant.
Three years later he found himself in Nottingham, working for a carton company. Having worked his way up to production Director some 14 years later, he had an idea of starting his own business, specialising in carton gluing and it was from this gem of an idea that fc cartons was formed in 2003.
The business has enjoyed steady growth since its inception and David says he still enjoys the challenge of the day to day aspects of running the business.
Ten years ago youngest Son Charlie decided he wanted a change from Football and started playing Basketball, David and Debra were delighted to go and support Charlie and not only see how much he was enjoying himself – but how much they really enjoyed watching and the company of the other players parents. All good – David and Debra became more and more involved with the Blazers – you’ve guessed it – David is now Chairman of Derby Trailblazers and loves every minute of all the challenges it presents (well almost every minute!) the opportunities the club gives to so many youngsters of all ages and abilities and his long term vision for the clubs development and success.
In his spare time! He enjoys a round of golf and supporting Birmingham City – somebody has to! David is also a keen collector of antiques and likes cooking for family and friends (and a very good cook he is too, by all accounts). He admits he now has little time to think about owning that restaurant.
