Dave Thornett - Business Development Manager
Dave works to attract capital and revenue, he develops stakeholder relationships and helps establish new funds.
Dave has 20 years’ experience in Social Enterprise, including 13 years at the Sheffield Community Enterprise Development Unit. The sector is part of who he is; he strongly believes we need stronger ethics in the business environment, and Social Enterprise is how to achieve that. He also had two periods of self-employment – as a business consultant for the sector, and as a musician.
Dave is the only member of a ukulele band who doesn’t play the ukulele (he plays drums). He also claims his love for cheese makes up around 40% of his physical make-up.
