David is one of the rare recruiters to really understand OT security. I've known David for a couple of years and we worked together on several opportunities. He has always be honest and transparent throughout the process. He has demonstrated a good technical knowledge (which is not something you would expect from a recruiter) and strong people's skills.

David is a rare beast; a genuine, hard-working, well-connected recruiter with a passion for Cyber. He has an innate understanding of who will succeed in which roles and I'm happy to recommend him to anyone looking for their next role or anyone with a Cyber role to fill.
