Managing Director

Accountancy Division

Senior Finance | Public Practice

David is founder and Managing Director at Harvey John having established the business in 2004.

Leading the accountancy division, David sources talent for senior finance commercial opportunities as well as working with a portfolio of clients within the accountancy profession.

He is driven by ensuring that the business continues to offer a high level of service to all clients and candidates, a learning and development culture internally and forging new business relationships whilst not taking established ones for granted! He describes himself as immensely proud of what the business has achieved so far and excited about what the future holds.

Despite being an avid fan and season ticket holder at Brighton and Hove Albion, an experienced traveller to over 40 countries and a music lover, time away from the office is mostly spent entertaining his twins!
