David King is non Executive Chairman of Mirador Solutions Group.
David is an entrepreneur and business consultant with 30+ years operating within the financial services sector in EMEA, APAC and the USA. He has founded a number of start ups with exit to trade sale and MBO. In addition, he has advised many SME suppliers to the financial services industry in terms of their corporate, product, services and sales & marketing strategies.
David’s consultancy experience extends into large corporate financial services businesses where his areas of expertise include programme management, technology, data and operating model design with specific experience in the front office, middle office and operational oversight.
David regards himself as an expert in how fund management companies should deploy and implement technology and the impacts on the overall operating model of the organisation through technology, data, operational processes, including maximising control and minimising operational risk.
As part of David’s involvement in Mirador, the company has developed a Reference Model, which allows its consultants to quickly understand how its operating model maps onto what Mirador considers to be “industry standard”. This allows projects to have a significant impact in a short period of time and assists in the development of an organisation’s own operating model.
David’s role in Mirador is to provide overall governance at the corporate level to guide and advise the Directors on the growth of the company. In addition, David provides oversight of key client projects and can be a point of escalation for clients, if needed.
