David Cotter, our HR Business Partner, has helped make Invacare the progressive culture it is today. David considers employees to be his clients and his great strengths lie is his open mindedness, and how he is naturally intent on creating diversity.
David said “I’m here to support staff in making the best contribution they can to the business, assist managers in making good hiring decisions, and to ensure we have the right people on board.” David enjoys how Invacare provides opportunities to develop staff, saying “like any great culture, it’s an evolving one!”
Originally from Wellington, David lived his teens and early twenties in Hawkes Bay before heading overseas to work and play, returning to Auckland in July 2018 for his Invacare career. Previous employment includes job placement for people with disabilities, amongst other widely ranging positions.
In his free time David listens to plenty of podcasts, his favourites are The Peter Schiff Show, as well as HR Happy Hour and Real Visions Presents: The Knock-On Effect. He’s also into mountain bikes and sailing boats.
