David Whyte


Managing Director Haven Products

David, a fully qualified chartered accountant, is Managing Director of Haven Products, a subsidiary of Momentum Scotland and the Rehab Group, both not-for-profit social care organisations. After moving from one of the “Big 5” accountancy firms into electrical retailing David became Director of Red Cross in Scotland and having developed an interest in the “More than Profit” sector joined Haven (which at one time had been owned by Red Cross).

Haven Products, a Star Social Firm employing disabled people, is a commercially run efficient business, operating from three sites across Scotland. Working with some of Scotland's largest blue-chip companies Haven Products delivers a range of business services from packaging to component assembly and from print finishing to quality inspection

David says, “I believe very strongly in the Social Firms model and the difference such organisations make to people with whom they engage, their families and friends and the communities in which they live. I believe it is important to highlight that Social Firms are professional, commercial and viable organisation that make good business partners. I was keen to become becoming an assessor which I see as a real opportunity to share good practice as well as learn from organisations that are also making positive impacts.”
