Ted & Betty Store

The Security Team

The four-legged members of dsnm, Ted and Betty, have varied roles within the office. If not curled up snoozing in their baskets, they will usually be found at the door waiting for the local delivery drivers to arrive to receive the daily parcels in exchange for a biscuit or two.

On a rare day off, they love nothing more than long walks in the countryside followed by a nap by the fire, the office life can take its toll on a Jack Russell.



David Store

CEO

Starting his career with a chart supplying company in 2000, David could see a niche in the superyacht market for a more supported service, which at that time did not exist. A few years of storing charts under his bed at his parents’ home for only a couple of yachts, quickly developed into dsnm, the multi-faceted navigation management company you see today. David’s enthusiasm for the business and its clients means he enjoys a very active role in the day to day running of the company and client relations. Outside of the office, he can often be found enjoying a round or two of golf and following many sports including motor racing, rugby, and football.
