Dave commenced work as an actuarial trainee with Liverpool Victoria.  Following short spells at Confederation Life and UK Provident, he joined M&G Reinsurance in 1986.  Whilst there he qualified as an actuary and co-authored the prize-winning paper 'Dread Disease Cover - An Actuarial Perspective', a ground-breaking review of the newly emerging cover now known as Critical Illness.  Dave is well known in the UK life industry from his marketing role at M&G and subsequently Swiss Re.  In 2001 Dave joined Swiss Life where he was responsible for individual protection business then, following their closure to new business, AXA Sun Life early in 2004.

Dave has maintained a keen interest in Critical Illness throughout its development and also co-authored 'A Critical Review', presented to the Staple Inn Actuarial Society in 2000.  Dave was a member of the ABI Critical Illness Working Party from 2000 to 2006 and chaired the CMI Critical Illness Committee from its inception in 1995 until 2005.  Dave has also spoken at numerous seminars on Critical Illness, in North America, Australia and New Zealand as well as the UK.

Dave was also a co-author of the 2007 paper “Treating Life Customers Fairly” which considered what constitutes TCF and how it can best be managed in non-profit business.

More recently Dave has taken a keen interest in the evolution of legislation on gender discrimination and has given a number of well-received presentations.
