About David

David Brands is a successful, double turnaround award winning business consultant, NED and turnaround practitioner. Sector agnostic but widely experienced in differing sectors such as energy, care homes, construction, manufacturing, engineering etc. Highly respected and called upon by high street Banks and Private Equity firms to provide NED and turnaround business support. A Member of the prestigious Institute for Turnaround

With over 25 years of achievement and success running, improving and performing turnarounds in large corporations, individual SME manufacturing and service industry companies, David acts as an advisor to the business management/owners/funders.

Working with executive teams to develop profitable growth plans, and their associated detailed business and action plans. Always results focused, David has extensive turnaround MD experience, commercial background, impressive credentials, manufacturing expertise and strong financial understanding.

Initially joining GEC as an HV electrical design engineer, David left the (re-named) “Alstom” 17 years later as a Group Managing Director of several international units, to perform a venture capital backed £4M MBI, of a small niche automotive manufacturing business in August 2000. He further acquired his much larger competitor from administrators in 2006, restructured and combined the two businesses, and in 2008, successfully exited from this activity.

Since 2009, he has been using this wealth of experience to help businesses large and small, to return loss making units to profitability, and help successful units deliver new growth.
