We’re delighted to announce the appointment of David Clarke as the R&D Partner for Sedulo Group.
David joins the Sedulo team following over 15 years at multinational professional services giant, Deloitte, where his specialist R&D claim experience covered a diverse range of sectors, including the likes of packaging, football and large-scale process industries. David’s work covered everyone from start-ups and SMEs, all the way through to global corporations.
Prior to his time at Deloitte, David spent the first 15 years of his career in product and process development roles within the chemical industry, giving him the perfect basis and grounding for claims in sectors such as manufacturing and engineering.
On joining Sedulo, David said:
“One of the many highlights of my role is discovering the range and depth of different innovation activities amongst the multitude of sectors I’ve worked in.
“From the first meeting with the Sedulo team it was clear that the company’s extensive client base is brimming with businesses who are all innovating in their own unique ways, so this was something that really stood out to me and convinced me that this is a place that really matches with my own passion for the role.
“I cannot wait to bring my specialist experience in the field to Sedulo and help even more businesses uncover the innovation and R&D qualifying activities many of them – sometimes unknowingly – are involved in.”
Sedulo Managing Partner, Paul Cheetham-Karcz, added:
“David is the epitome of a world-class recruit for us. His arrival adds decades of experience to our current R&D team and his eye for innovation is something that fits with the Sedulo approach to a tee.
“David will naturally be working very closely with all of our existing R&D team to really understand our client base and continue to give our clients even greater access to the opportunities that their innovative work deserves to be rewarded for.”
David’s arrival follows the recent addition of People & Culture Director, Laura McGowan, from global digital, media and creative agency, MediaCom. In a similar vein to Laura, David’s R&D team is also set for further expansion, with positions already opening for an R&D / Innovations Consultant and a Graduate R&D Tax Consultant.
