David Pearce - Chief Executive of CanTeen.

David is here to talk about the value of businesses engaging with the non-profit sector and about his experience with managing high performance teams and how to get great staff performance.

David has been Chief Executive of CanTeen since 1 Feb 2009. Born in NZ, he has spent most of his career in big business and only recently 'seen the light' and moved to not for profit. Better late than never!

He has spent 18 years in senior management positions with the Anglo Dutch multi national Unilever. After starting in NZ, Unilever later took him and his family to live in the Philippines, Singapore and England as well.

David's work, primarily in human resources and communication roles, saw him in many international projects, in over 30 countries, where he engaged with both senior leadership groups and often, with younger management trainees; an adventure and a privilege.

Back home in NZ since 2002, he has happily spent the last 5 years with Fonterra, firstly in their consumer products business and finally, in their Auckland HQ. Three years ago some fantastic young CanTeeners inspired him. He made one of them a promise to use his life well. He is delighted now to work in CanTeen and make good on that promise.
