Cathal asked David to join the business towards the end of 2015 when the business was heavily reliant on himself. The rate of growth meant that the resources and workload of the business needed to be assessed ready to push forward again and Cathal wanted to spread the risk of reliance that was currently solely on himself. David’s background involves mechanical engineering, motorsport and business consultancy. The processes of CPD Bodies have now been matched to the size and rate of growth that the business is experiencing. The infrastructure and technology in place helps our staff and the customer to have all of the useful information to hand to allow decisions to be made quickly in a fast paced commercial environment. David works closely with manufacturers and government agencies to try to influence the rest of the market to help improve choice and standard in the commercial vehicle body building industry for everyone involved.
