Dave Anderson - President

Member since 1995

As a trial lawyer and partner in McLachlan Brown Anderson, Dave first became interested in Cheshire when a client became a resident of King Edward House.

Since joining the board in 1995 David has become progressively more involved with the Leonard Cheshire Disability Global Alliance and is now Chairperson of the Americas Region and Canadian National Chairperson.

David’s commitment to CHSBC is based on his belief “that it was and clearly remains the right thing to do. Assisting the survivors of acquired brain injury and by extension persons with any kind of disability through my involvement with Leonard Cheshire Disability has offered many non-monetary rewards and a great measure of personal satisfaction. It helps that our staff are terrific and our residents are most definitely proud and happy that we are there for them and with them”.
