Corporate culture is a key element of the employment decisions David makes, and first hand experience of the Purolite Corporation meant that he knew it would be a great company to return to, offering a positive work space and excellent focus on employee wellbeing. David will work remotely in territory, with regular visits to R&D Centre of Excellence in Llantrisant, Wales.

David received a Master’s degree in Chemistry with Industrial Placement from the University of Manchester, located in the U.K. He then returned to receive his Ph.D. in Synthetic Organic Chemistry. He comes to Purolite from Lonza, a pharmaceutical contract development and manufacturing organization, where he worked in business development. David enjoys the concept of helping to solve a customer’s problem and is motivated by watching the solutions work.
David will be based in the Midlands, U.K., where he lives with his family. When not providing a taxi service for his children’s social activities, he likes to run, play football and hike. He is also a qualified furniture maker. David is also very active within his community, having organized the local 10k road race and fun run for several years, raising money for the elementary school. He is also the founder and event organizer for a local annual festival; a 3-day event with music, open gardens, sporting events, and comedy acts, as well as many more activities.
“I’m really looking forward to getting reacquainted with the Purolite team and technologies, and bringing the learnings gained since last working in ion exchange to bear on the UK customer base,” David comments on his new position here at Purolite.
