Dave Whitaker - Operations Director


David joined Warren more than 30 years ago to develop its warehouse and logistics operation. He then spent a number of years in both inside and outside sales  before returning to an operational role that includes facilities, project and quality systems management.

David has two teenage sons and lives near Thame in Oxfordshire. His lifelong support of West Ham demonstrates a sense of the absurd - or the triumph of hope over expectation. In his spare time you might bump into David wandering the Chiltern Hills or rambling in one of Oxford’s finer hostelries. And in the summer months his love of music steers him towards festivals such as Cropredy, Cambridge and Towersey.
