David Francis
Director at West London Alliance


I've built my career around my passion for sustainable and inclusive economic development, after initially qualifying as a Chartered Valuation Surveyor and many years later gaining an MSc in sustainable cities. My experience includes leadership roles across the public, private and not for profit sectors; developing and delivering policy and projects at Local, National and EU levels.
