After 14 years in the fashion clothing industry where he trained in Germany as a production engineer, he started his own business producing protective sports clothing for sailing, country sports and skiing. Having sold it after 17 years he spent 9 years running a mail-order and internet based marine retail business. Thereafter he bought into a marine and specialist paint manufacturing company whilst consulting for various electronics companies developing MOB systems and also for a major German lifejacket manufacturer. Latterly he has been developing the UK market for a large French boat interior furniture producer.

Whilst doing this, he worked his way through various committees to become President of the (then) British Marine Federation, Vice Chairman of National Boat Shows, Vice Chairman of ICOMIA and a Council Member of the RYA.

He has now worked in the marine industry for nearly 40 years. 

Some projects recently undertaken by David Lewin:

  • Advised a UK marine paint manufacturer about compliance and export sales.
  • Consulted for the UK government on stopping old antifouling paint being washed into the water.
  • Consulted for a German lifejacket manufacturer on introducing its brand to the UK.
  • Undertaken a 'hearts and mind' operation for a French OEM manufacturer to persuade UK boat builders of the efficacy of subcontracting and then follow up with representation.
