David Riley

Customer Service Specialist

A career long customer service professional, with specialisms in customer experience, customer insight, complaints, contact centres, cultural transformation programmes, mergers, divestments, remediation programmes and operations management.

David earned his stripes in retail banking before the banking crash opened up opportunities to work in a variety of different banks. He then took the plunge and moved sectors to housing; gaining valuable insight into customer behaviour where often consumers find themselves without a choice of landlord.

David is pragmatic, likes to simplify situations and find solutions to often complex customer issues. An advocate for embracing technology and innovation in the workplace, whilst recognising that customers should always have a choice as to how they access a service.

Currently self employed as a customer experience consultant in a large housing association, David lives in Cambridgeshire and in his spare time undertakes charitable work and increasingly acts as “Dad’s taxi” to his two teenage daughters!
