With a long and distinguished career in the sports industry, which saw him awarded an OBE in 2006, he is one of the most well known and respected football administrators in the game. He served English football for almost 13 years as Executive Director and Head of International Development at The Football Association.

Since his retirement from The FA in 2006, shop David has maintained and developed his top network of contacts in every continent, matching Soccerex’s global business reach and reputation. He is regularly invited to assist national associations, confederations and clubs with reform and reorganisation programmes. Alongside this, David works closely with organisations that are committed to using the power of football for social development. As one of the founder supporters of London 2012, he is currently working with others to ensure the international legacy of the Olympics and Paralympics.

David is also known for his long standing broadcasting career which continues with BBC Television, Radio 5Live and Sky News.

He commented today: “I am thrilled to have been asked to assist Soccerex who have an enviable reputation around the world for bringing together the global leaders of the game that I love. The name Soccerex is recognised in every continent, and I look forward to a long relationship with its events wherever they may be held.”
