For over 10 years he ran a Dublin-based business where he was responsible for managing the IT for large infrastructure projects.He sold his business in 2011 to pursue a new business challenge and as third generation Health Care person and having experienced serious illness in his family it felt natural to pursue a career in Home Care.
Having researched the local market place, David looked at the US which has a mature Home Care delivery model.
