“The Scottish Waterways Trust uses the nation’s canals to reconnect communities and bring people together.”
I’m David and I’m the Trust’s Strategic Development Director. I source funding through New project & partnership developments for strategic development plans (BIDS).
Before I started working with the trust I was a chartered accountant serving as Director of Finance with EMMS International, an international Healthcare charity and used this knowledge as one of the Scottish Waterways Trust’s Trustees. I was also non-executive Director of the charity Fischy Music and was closely involved in developing and improving its financial sustainability during my time there. Prior to moving into the third sector, I worked at Noble Grossart, an Edinburgh-based private merchant bank, for more than twenty years.
I want to see the Trust continue to work with and grow our incredible network of volunteers to make a real difference to their lives and the waterways themselves.
