A message from our founder, David Brownlow


My business philosophy and success is based on:

  • Providing strong leadership and consistent messages
  • Making a business flexible and nimble to meet the demands of clients
  • Ensuring an unrivalled track record of delivery to clients
  • Remembering that as well as clients, delivery and profit, business is about people, their careers and families. This means that making work fun for everyone engaged in the business is important
  • Being able to make hard decisions

In addition to my commercial interests in Huntswood, I also own The Havisham Group, a diverse trading and investment entity.

Quite a lot of my time is spent on my charitable and philanthropic activities.

I have my own Charitable Foundation which provides support where there is evidence of disadvantage – be it an individual or community.

In addition I am working with HRH The Prince of Wales to support Him in two areas: His Foundation for Building Community – where He made me a Trustee in 2013 and its Chairman in early 2014 – and also His work at Dumfries House where He has made me a Trustee.

For some years I have been a Patron of The Prince of Wales Hospice in Pontefract and a Patron of the NSPCC's Full Stop campaign.
