Senior Managers

Dr David Cooke

Chairman & Managing Director

With a Doctorate in Corporate Social Responsibility, David demonstrates the value of managing a company with ethics and equality as the driving force. "As well as our on-going community partnership programs, we’re dedicated through our efforts and influence to improve the quality of life for people affected by modern slavery or unfair work practices throughout the supply chain. Increasingly, we’re finding customers and employees are moved to work with companies that have purpose, diversity and are committed to doing the right thing. It’s been wonderful to see the company growing in strength over the years, as a result".

With over 25 years' experience in the IT industry, David has steered Konica Minolta through changing times including the addition of software, services, 3D printing, robotics and industrial print to the traditional office and production print hardware.

"The changes in our industry are happening in all industries, as we look for better ways to create value for our customers and build a sustainable future. Our people are committed to working with customers to really understand what’s going to make a difference in their business, and deliver the right solution for them - whatever that may be. And importantly, to be there for the long term, proving the service and support to keep their business operating at its best".
