Born and bred in Canterbury, David Pottinger completed his Bachelor of Commerce degree at Canterbury University before enjoying a 5 year OE in the UK and Germany, where he met his wife Kylie!
While they missed the worst of the Christchurch earthquakes they returned home to experience many aftershocks, and help out with the recovery. David working as a project manager helping people through the rebuilding process getting many families back into new homes.
When the project was completed, David decided to follow his dream of running a successful small business. From the experience gained through the earthquakes, it showed how important having a plan in place for such worse case scenarios was and found it to be a natural progression from Project Management to becoming a Risk Adviser, and Optimalife was born.
