David has held senior positions with Virgin, Stagecoach Group, East Midlands Trains and South West Trains including as Managing Director of East Midlands Trains from 2011 to 2015, and Virgin Trains East Coast from 2015 to 2018. In his time at East Midlands Trains, he was responsible for delivering the UK's most punctual long distance services over a five year period and under his leadership the company won Passenger Operator of the Year in 2014.
