CEO and Board Member
David’s vision to build the world’s most innovative pet food company commenced when VIP Pet Foods was acquired by Quadrant Private Equity in 2015. Under his guidance, a new corporate entity was born - Real Pet Food Co – armed with a mission to create a portfolio of brands that are committed to championing real love, real food and real ethics for our pets.
With a 25-year global career with Nestlé, which included the Purina pet care range among other FMCG categories, David is one of the world’s most qualified pet care leaders. He is focused on growing RPFC both through acquisitions and organically, all the while remaining true to the Real ethos of the new corporate brand.
