David is a Senior Manager at PKF and is based in our Newcastle office.
David is an analytical thinker who has a focus on utilising advances in data analytics to benefit clients and make the audit process smoother and more efficient by delivering true value and insights that inform decisions and improve processes.
Starting at PKF over 11 years ago, David was a member of the firm’s REACH program, designed as an introduction to accounting for the brightest and most talented undergraduates and graduates. David’s talent shone throughout the program and he was quickly recruited by the audit team where he has gone on to nurture his talent and become an aspiring leader at the firm.
During his tenure, David has invested time in his clients through by participating in secondments when the opportunity has arisen, and his clients are in need. This has given him additional insight into the internal workings and controls of particular clients and exposure to environments other than those of PKF and accounting.
David focuses on what is important to his clients. He does this by ensuring that he gets to know his clients, understands their pain point and main areas of risk, rather than employing a tick-box strategy which could leave his clients exposed. He understands the evolving nature of many of the organisations he works with and works to ensure that he is one step ahead, facing the challenges and curveballs that come his way.
David has been identified as a key player in the PKF International and PKF Australia data analytics strategy team.
