Utilities Practice Leader, Teradata
David started his career as a hands-on electrical
distribution networks engineer, helping to keep the lights on in Central
Scotland. In the mid-1990s, he moved through roles in Scottish Power's
electricity retail deregulation programme and into the second stage of
his career as an IT Strategist and Manager.
From a successful time in such roles, David then spent 4 years at a
major international systems integrator and consultancy before joining
Teradata around 4 years ago. David initially led Teradata’s Utilities
practice in Europe, Middle East & Africa but now also has
responsibility for Asia Pacific & Japan. He works with local and
account-focused teams to bring Teradata's unrivalled data and analytics
capabilities and knowledge to the International Utilities sector.
David lives in Singapore, but has lived most of his life in
Edinburgh, Scotland (at least at the weekends). He has a B.Eng from
Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh and an MSc from the Robert Gordon
University, Aberdeen. He remains an engineer at heart. Don't get him
talking about whisky unless you have plenty of time on your hands.
