David is the Director of Latin America and the Caribbean for British aviation companies Routes and ASM, both of which are part of United Business Media (UBM) plc portfolio.

After attending the University of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, David worked for US Airways from 2001, initially with corporate accounts for the airline’s Spain-US operations, later expanding into the Mexican market upon US Airways’ launch of services to Mexico City.

In 2005, David was promoted to Analyst, a role which he performed for two and a half years prior to joining Routes in 2007. David was relocated in March 2008 to Mexico in order to build and lead the Latin American and Caribbean business for Routes, within the region.   During this time, he was able to significantly expand the business, leading to a much increased Latin American and Caribbean representation in all areas of route development activity which has brought about key benefits for the region, over time.

His remit was later expanded to include the route development consultancy arm of the business, ASM, where he has now been providing route development consultancy, analytical and training services for clients since 2011.

David has played a key role in establishing numerous air services for clients around the region using his wide ranging aviation and analytical experience. David was relocated again in August of 2015 and is now based in Miami, Florida. David is a fluent Spanish speaker and has a true passion for Latin American history, economics and politics.
