David Gaffney, Associate Partner, is the second member of our team to have served an apprenticeship at Beattie Media, having joined the team there upon graduating from the University of Stirling in 2000. In 2007, David joined RBS on the eve of one of the bank’s – and the banking industry’s - most turbulent periods. He spent three years there working on media relations for the group’s corporate banking division, before joining the group media team in early 2011.
In late 2013, David became Head of Communications for the RBS spin-off challenger bank, Williams & Glyn. David joined Charlotte Street Partners in January 2015. He is the only member of the office to have enjoyed a lengthy unbeaten spell at table tennis, mainly by refusing to play anyone to whom he might lose. He is also the director of Scotland’s fast-growing Total Warrior franchise – an annual test of physical and mental endurance played out in wild locations across the country.
