David Griffin – Managing Director

David Griffin is a founding partner of K2, responsible for developing business opportunity in both current and new markets.  David gained ground-up  experience of the oil and gas industry, working in the field firstly as a technician, then as a team leader providing inspection, maintenance and repair services to both Drilling and FPSO companies.  This experience exposed the need for safety focused, higher quality service providers in the Asia region.  Understanding and meeting client expectation has been a key objective of K2 ever since. 

Based in Asia for over 15 years, David has used his years of international experience to develop long lasting business relationships with clients and operating partners from across the globe.  

In 2011 David completed an Executive MBA in Energy, a double degree course held between NTU (Singapore), BI (Norway) and the Institute of Petroleum (France).  This has provided a strong foundation for the understanding of oil industry drivers, key development regions and the identification of further opportunities in the energy sector that K2 will need to embrace as the company continues to grow and expand around the world. 

David is a keen surfer and sailor and will be found with his family close to water in his time away from K2.
