Never switches off. Dubbed as Mr. Innovation by colleagues and industry, in 1987 David Thornhill first started out in the recruitment industry as a payroll clerk for a local firm in Gloucestershire. David went onto write the first ever software model of its kind for the temp recruitment market, integrating payroll, invoicing, sales ledger, funding and comprehensive management reporting; in essence creating a completely new funding supplier sector.
In 2004 David launched Cash Simply, which marked the start of a company based on a similar model to those he had previously developed to great success. Cash Simply has since rebranded to ‘Simplicity’, progressed from a standing start to an annual turnover of more than £100 million and have built an operational base that does not restrict growth.
When he’s not dreaming up his next business venture, David enjoys travelling the world; attending music festivals and doing the occasional charity skydive.
