David retired from The Metropolitan Police Service as a Detective Chief Inspector in 2008 where he became one of the most effective detectives in dismantling organised crime networks. He formed TM-Eye, the parent company to MLB, to investigate the supply of counterfeit goods and undertake private criminal prosecutions. TM-Eye is now the most effective and respected private organisation in this field and has teams focusing globally on luxury goods, tobacco, pharmaceuticals and design rights along with high value frauds. This is supported by covert experts and a new office being established in India. To date over 400 private prosecutions have been undertaken with a 100% conviction rate. David saw TM-Eye as the “catch’ and ‘convict’ arm of the organisation and had the vision to form MLB as the front end to ‘prevent’ and ‘deter’ crime and anti social behaviour. David continually advises high-profile clients and organisations from the worlds of commerce and media on matters of corporate and private security / investigation.
