David Cornish

Global sustainability manager, AkzoNobel

Having spent over 30 years as a sales and marketing professional for the ‘Dulux’ brand, often alongside the construction industry and with a passion for innovation and working with business start-ups, David is now part of the Global Sustainability team at AkzoNobel. His particular field is in trying to create a good end result from the waste left over by users of its products. In doing so, he has experienced a real sense of ‘deja vu’ – lots of great ideas, lots of people trying to new things but with the hard-headed realism of having to take customers, both consumers and B2B, along in a challenging market place.
