Home About Us Meet the Team David Warby: Chairman

David Warby: Chairman

David Warby WebMy responsibilities are to bring an outside view to the business, with a strategic focus on the future.

I joined the company as Chairman on 1st March 1996, when the Leisure Management contract with Mendip District Council started. Before that I had worked with Peter Gilpin and Tim Richards from August 1995 advising on the tender for the contract.

I am a Chartered Mechanical Engineer, with more than 40 years' experience in many industries as a company director.

Working for Avalon Leisure: Working at Avalon Leisure is always a pleasure because of the enthusiastic people who have transformed the business over the last 16 years.

Life outside of work:  I have always been interested in sports, having grown up in Sri Lanka and South Africa. I played serious rugby at London University, was one of the early surfers in Cornwall and still go to the gym and swim.
