In 1993, he rejoined Marenco Ltd. with his brother Tony and other partners. He has managed various projects mainly throughout the Eastern Caribbean, namely Antigua, Grenada and St. Lucia.
One of the projects David is especially fond of is the construction of the Egmont Bridge in Grenada, which was completed in 1999.
