David Prescott

Chief Operating Officer

David joined the organisation as Executive Director, Finance and Commercial in August 2005. He is responsible for all aspects of finance, the operation of our retail arm and wide-ranging business support.

David began his career as a consultant with Andersen Consulting. Later, with BTR, in the eighties, he was involved in turning around poorly performing companies or growing and developing small companies or joint ventures, based in UK, Middle East and Africa. His move to the NSPCC as Chief Operating Officer in 1998 saw him play a key role in overseeing the ambitious and financially successful The Full Stop campaign, aimed at ending cruelty to children.

David says, “I’m very proud of what Scope has achieved, particularly over the last few years. The staff have enormous expertise and are deeply committed to our vision for the future. Our plans are ambitious and challenging, but it’s going to be fun too!”
