David Collins


David Collins is a war baby and many traits remain.
A strong aptitude towards engineering led his career development to an early election into the institutes of Mechanical and Production Engineers. Various management positions steered him into ‘Export Sales and Marketing' and a jet set style existence. Tired of this he decided on a new venture and emigrated to Portugal where he now lives, happily retired, in the Algarve.
