David grew up in an entrepreneurial family where he worked in a wholesale food distribution business at all levels of responsibility until he was in his forties. It was during those years that David, with his father, launched a commercial building rental business that continues to this day (Gwennel Holdings Ltd.). The wholesale food distribution business was sold to Co-op Atlantic in 2000 and David, with his family, moved to London, Ontario. David and his wife continued in business opening two Curves franchises and David launched a sales and marketing company representing manufacturers in the USA and Canada. Also at that time, David was involved in Christian Business Ministries where he led entrepreneurial support groups throughout southwestern Ontario.
In 2010 David and his wife moved back to Cape Breton and reset their lives afresh. He and his wife now own and operate Gwennel Holdings Ltd and David saw real estate sales as a natural progression to complement his leasing and sales activities.
David brings years of life and business experience to the real estate industry which naturally gives him skills such as problem-solving, the ability to analyze and the ability to recognize good opportunities and potential issues. He is known for his conciliatory nature, integrity and his willingness to go the extra mile in his approach to sales.
David and his wife Sandra live in the Mira area with their three dogs. They have five adult children and eight grandchildren.
