Looking Back on A Varied Life

To say that David has led an interesting life would be an understatement.
Glasgow, Edinburgh, Harvard, and New York were his early academic successes. His business life saw him running many large and varied companies in Scotland, USA, India, and Israel. He was UK Chairman of UJIA FOR 6 years, and is still actively involved in many charities. He made Aliyah to Israel in 2012.
