David's focus at Alchemy is primarily on project delivery, including the management of major refurbishments and developments. He also exploits his knowledge and experience of the town planning system to enhance assets through extension or change of use.

David’s property development experience began at DTZ in the late 1980s, specifically managing the disposal of surplus public sector assets, and deriving maximum value through the planning process before sale. He later worked in both investment strategy and financial services before leading the pan-European corporate real estate team at DTZ. 

David subsequently formed his own successful asset management business in 2004, before founding Alchemy with Guy in 2012.
