Educated at the University of St. Andrews, David Copley spent the first part of his career in the aerospace industry, working in the field of engineering technology and development. He acquired chartered status in 1985. Thereafter, he held posts at British Aerospace and Schlumberger. He moved into the role of General Manager and Sales Director for a subsidiary of Pressure Systems in 1996. David’s immediate challenge was to relocate the operation from Germany and establish a viable accounting & finance system. David chose QuickBooks, and asked Katherine to set up the system and provide training.

Acquiring detailed knowledge of all aspects of running a successful business with Pressure Systems, including QuickBooks as a manager and user for over 12 years, David joined forces with Katherine to form Orchard Accounting Solutions.
