Dave was a Director at Myers & Co Limited since 2003 and set up MCA on 1 April 2011 so that he could create an accounting practice that goes beyond the numbers to the drivers that really drive business success.

Dave and his wife, Lynda have 6 children, the oldest 22 and the youngest 12 so he keeps pretty busy most of the time. When he’s not spending time with family, Dave can be found either on his bike on the back roads of Canterbury, kayaking down a river or at the supermarket restocking the fridge full of food!
