I am the proprietor of David Rosbottom & Company (Marketing & Business Consultancy) and Director & General Manager of Cables & Conductors Ltd. (Sales & Distribution of Electrical Conductors : Lamifil n.v.).

Prior to this I held senior roles with Delta Crompton Ltd., as Product Manager and the General Electric Company of England Ltd., (GEC Cables & Wires Group) as Marketing/Commercial Director which also included being the director responsible for the Aluminium Division general management, including financial, sales, production, technical and quality management functions.

Outside of work, as I believe that all our children/students are entitled to the best education we can give
them, I have involved myself with local education in Lancashire and Greater Manchester to try and achieve these aims as a Governor and Trust Member/Chair at Dean Trust Wigan for 10 months and 4 years respectively, a Governor and subsequently Chair of Governors at Winstanley College for the past 16 years and prior to that I was a parent and then co-opted Governor/Vice-Chair at Upholland High School for 8 years.

I also enjoy sport being involved with, nowadays as a supporter only, Wigan Warriors, Liverpool FC and both of my older grandsons football/rugby teams, and supporting my wife and family in encouraging any activities that all of my grandchildren are involved in.
