David Wright Product Champion Lead, More4apps

Picture this: Salty hair, sandy feet, and waves crashing on the shore. This is where you’re likely to find David on a Sunday afternoon – Raglan his local surf break. David joined the More4apps team in 2005 after returning to New Zealand from an OE, something Kiwi’s (New Zealander’s) call an overseas experience, the rest of the world tend to call it “traveling”. Originally based in the “Big Smoke” of Auckland he now resides in Raglan with his wife and two kids. David looks after the Pre-Sales team and assists the Support and Marketing teams. You may have noticed that David has an active lifestyle and this goes hand-in-hand with his work life too, where he enjoys the variation in his day-to-day roles with the ability to deal with people from all over the world. Two people David would like to invite along to dinner would be Frank Black and Iggy Pop both influential musicians with outrageous and unpredictable stage antics. Imagine what dinner could be like!
