South West

David Potter MCMI

David is thankful for the hard work and dedication members have shown in growing the Institute’s South West presence. He is also looking forward to continuing the great work of the South West board in meeting the needs of existing and new members.

David believes that the South West region contains some of the most entrepreneurial people; a rich diversity of public and private sector organisations; and should play a significant part in powering the UK's continued growth.

With the CMI's incredible resources and skills set, we're in an ideal position to equip those organisations with the management and leadership skills they require.
