GovPlanet UK and Europe
Currently working as Managing Director of GovPlanet UK and Europe, part of IronPlanet Inc. IronPlanet operates online platforms for the re-sale of capital equipment. David is responsible for establishing and growing IronPlanet’s government-facing business in UK and Europe under the GovPlanet brand.
David Shouesmith had a fast-track military career to the rank of major-general, operating in a variety of logistics, acquisition and operational appointments, with his last 3 years in the MoD in London. In 2009 David left to pursue a new career in management consulting, bringing his experience of strategy, major projects and strategic supply chain management to a range of large and small companies in defence and other sectors. In 2016 he joined a US tech company to lead its UK and Europe market entry. David’s rare breadth of experience across both government and industry gives him a profound understanding of how people, systems and processes must operate across the enterprise to deliver major projects and services in a politicised context.
