David Taylor

Managing Director

David Taylor is a Managing Director with Teneo in London, having joined Teneo as part of its purchase of Deloitte’s UK Restructuring business.

David has over 30 years of experience leading international operational restructuring programmes, working in both executive and advisory roles. This has included: managed wind down of banking subsidiaries and branches; pan-European restructure via Cross Border Merger; sale and separation of business units and portfolios; relocation of processing centres; establishment of non-core SPVs and bad banks, and outsourcing.

Prior to joining Deloitte, David held senior operations and strategy positions with several major multi-national businesses based in the UK, France and the USA. With his strong operational background David focuses on ensuring that plans are practical and sustainable.

Over the past 12 years David has focussed on the banking sector and has led the restructure of banks which are either in crisis, need to rapidly address major capital issues or are looking to reduce cost/optimise structure.  This has included the closure of groups, subsidiaries and branches, the set-up of non-core divisions and “bad-banks” and the restructuring to maximise value and/or effectiveness.
