Member: David Axon NXD & Advisory

I have had an extremely varied and unusual career.

Since my early days as a Platoon Commander of an Anti-Terrorist/Riot Platoon in Hong Kong, I have moved on a bit. For over 25 years I have worked in senior line management positions in industry and consultancy and advisory roles in global professional service firms.

I have operated in businesses across many sectors covering small and large, complex assignments in the UK and internationally. I provide profit & performance improvement, operational due diligence/assessments, synergy identification and post-merger integration/carve-out assignments of businesses, along with operational restructuring advice and hands-on implementation for transactions/deals and for under-performing businesses - for Private Equity, Corporates, Banks, Investment Houses and Family Offices. I have particular expertise in driving operational efficiencies across geographically distributed multi-site operations.

I have worked in countries across MENA, India, Europe, Americas, Scandinavia and I speak Russian, Serbian, Croatian, French & Cantonese. During the last 10 years in particular, I have been personally investing in and acquiring businesses, now successfully exited, assuming Non-Executive Director roles in several companies.

With significant connections across UK and globally and unusually broad expertise across the whole business life-cycle, I am now seeking NXD and Advisory roles - and have some time available to start rebuilding a portfolio.

I am also undertaking the Institute of Leadership & Management Level 7 Corporate Coach International Qualification, enabling me to embed an Executive Coaching capability into my skills-base. Please feel free to contact me at any time.
