Announcement – Directorial Promotions and Company Restructure

August 10, 2023

DF&A are delighted to announce a series of staff promotions across the business. These promotions form part of a wider management restructure, which reflects the founding partners faith in the leadership of the new team of directors for the continued success of DF&A, both now and for the future.

As part of this restructure, our founding partners – Greg French and Nick Davis will now become Executive Chairman and Deputy Chairman respectively of the newly formed board of directors. Both Greg and Nick will continue to be closely involved in the business, lending their considerable knowledge and experience to the Directors to help achieve DF&A’s ambitious long-term goals.

To ensure the seamless day-to-day running of the business moving forward, David Brooks and Sally Davis have been promoted to become joint Managing Directors. Each bring something unique to the role, with David’s success project managing some of DF&A’s largest and most prestigious claims in his previous role as Director of Business Recovery Project Management Services, and Sally having excelled as General Operations Director, managing the day-to-day operational requirements of the business for the past 15 years. Their combined knowledge and experience of field operations, core business functions and leadership will be invaluable for their new roles.

To support the new Managing Directors, there have been three further additions to the directorial team.

Having established, grown and managed the DF&A laboratory and scientific services for the past six years, plus over a decade in the industry, Olivia French now becomes our Environmental Services Director. After numerous years managing sales and marketing activity, as well as working directly with our clients in a client relationship management capacity, Jack Corden now becomes our Strategy Director.

Both Olivia and Jack have recently been awarded their MBA degrees following 3 years of study alongside their full-time working roles. Their commitment to ensuring their formal business knowledge and education is able to match their experience within DF&A and the wider industry has ensured that they will be key to the future of DF&A and its ongoing success. Olivia will now oversee all scientific operations and research within DF&A, ensuring our laboratory services remain the foremost within the industry, alongside her wider directorial duties. Jack will combine his knowledge of DF&A’s brand and values, the needs of our customers and the principles of strategic management gained during his studies to ensure that both DF&A and our customers achieve their strategic goals.

DF&A values the pursuit of knowledge, ensuring the technical excellence of our staff, as well as helping all of our team to achieve their personal and professional goals. As part of our commitment to this, as one of the most experienced and capable members of the DF&A team, Tony McAdams has been promoted to the position of Knowledge & Training Director. Tony will bring his decades of damage management industry experience and technical ability to the fore, ensuring that DF&A continue to be the leading provider of practical, technical and scientific solutions to the insurance industry and beyond.

Our founding partners believe our new board structure, as well as the directors appointed to occupy these board seats are without doubt the foundations for a successful future for DF&A, helping us to continue making the extraordinary possible for all of our customers – Wherever, Whenever, Whatever.
