David is a founding director of CKL, bringing the L to the company name when Carter & Latham merged with Jellie & Keucke in 1988. David’s name has become synonymous with planning and surveying in Te Awamutu and his long-term partnerships with many of the regions developers has assisted in securing most of the large-scale projects in the region.

In 2005, David decided to retire from the position of CKL Director and drop back to three days a week to spend more time focusing on property development, as a member of the Board for a developer in the Bay of Plenty.

David gets immense satisfaction from having helped to develop and grow younger generations of planners and surveyors. He has mentored numerous graduates and seen them rise through the ranks of CKL, or elsewhere in the profession.

David’s wife Gill works along-side David in Te Awamutu as the company accountant, and has also been with CKL since day one.
