Sir David received the ambassadorial appointment to the United States in September 2003. He has been a member of the Foreign Service since 1972 and has held posts in Warsaw, Poland; New Delhi; Paris; and Moscow, among other places. In 2000, Sir David became the permanent United Kingdom representative to NATO and foreign policy adviser to British Prime Minister Tony Blair, a position he held until 2003.

The ambassador was recently named knight commander of the Order of St. Michael and St. George. He received his education at Oxford and the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies in Bologna, Italy.
