David is kbc’s Director of PR, leading a team of six and overseeing all of the agency’s PR activity, with particularly close involvement in our work for the Florida Keys and The Leisure Pass Group, as well as being a key member of the company’s senior management team.
David joined us in January 2013, having spent most of his career in travel and tourism PR with another of the industry’s respected agencies, gaining extensive experience across a wide range of travel sectors, destinations and products. He’s represented leading international and domestic brands as diverse as the Hong Kong Tourism Board, Carnival Cruise Lines and VisitGuernsey.
His 24 years in travel have seen many highlights, among them watching England win the 2003 Rugby World Cup surrounded by 100 partying travel agents in New Zealand, climbing Sydney Harbour Bridge and ballooning over Kenya’s Masai Mara – the latter two something of an achievement for someone who is terrified of heights!
David combines a passion for travel with a strategic, pragmatic approach and a near-religious devotion to West Ham United, ELO and Game of Thrones.
