Chief Executive Officer
Dave has spent over 30 years in the technology industry designing, developing and implementing large scale IT systems. Whilst Head of Ericsson Consulting Dave’s team created a number of pioneering software solutions for Ericsson’s customer base which are still in use today.
Dave founded MCMS in 2003 with the foresight that digital forensics would be a rapidly growing industry over the years ahead, and that there was a hole in the market for a new solution. With Dave’s key contacts within the military and intelligence agencies, it quickly became apparent that this far-sightedness was well founded and these units were all crying out for more user-friendly tools to rapidly acquire data.
In recent years Dave has overseen the rapid growth of MCMS from self-funded start-up to a global technology manufacturer that has been revolutionising the digital forensics market.
