David has recently retired from Darwin Clayton, the NAS’ preferred insurance broker, after 34 years of employment. Prior to joining Darwin Clayton, David had worked as an Underwriter in the City for 10 years.

A strong supporter of the NAS, David began attending our events in the 1990’s and has missed only a few since. He cites our President’s Weekends in Belfast, Lake Como, and Jersey, as being particularly memorable.

Speaking on becoming our latest Honorary Member, David said:

It is has been an absolute honour and joy for me to have worked closely with the Association during my time at Darwin Clayton. So I was absolutely delighted, and indeed shocked and amazed, to be invited to become an Honorary Member. What I really like about the NAS as an Association, is that it really is somewhere where people come together and work together to improve the industry as well as their business.

James Filus, NAS Director said:

David's unwavering support of the NAS and our members over the past 30 years has not gone unnoticed. It was the unanimous view of the Executive Council that David's retirement should be marked with Honorary Membership of the NAS - and we are delighted he has accepted this position of status within the Association.


Honorary Membership is conferred on those who, in the view of the Executive Council, have given exceptional or outstanding service to the Industry. It infers no financial obligation to the NAS, but does entitle access to the benefits of membership.
