David London served for five years in The Life Guards and commanded a troop of Challenger tanks in the 1990 Gulf War. He also served in The Foreign and Commonwealth Office as a diplomat and for the past decade has advised leading corporations on matters of risk and strategy.
“My military service began as the Cold War ended, and ended just as our armed forces embarked on two decades of near-constant combat operations. As such, I was not called on to endure the hardships of many of my contemporaries and successors in uniform.
”Times of war can be good for military charities’ finances, as the British public is generous when it is reminded of the sacrifice of servicemen. But when the shooting stops, the needs of those whom war has damaged do not go away, and that is why I have been inspired by Patria’s mission to provide a reliable income stream to the charities that support our veterans and their families.”
David is helping shape Patria’s growth plan.
