Home Our Team David Bird Marketing Director

As our digital marketing guru, David is an SEO, PR and content expert. His principles-based approach to marketing has been instrumental in helping us position ourselves where we need to be to attract visitors to our website and deliver the best possible experience. 

When David met Pete Mugleston, they found that their talents, although at opposite ends of the spectrum, complimented each other perfectly. The pair taught themselves web development and built an early version of Online Mortgage Advisor in David’s spare room.

After training himself in the basic principles of Internet marketing, David worked with Pete on the first wave of content for the website, focusing on helping customers with bad credit and self-employed professionals in the early days, before branching out into broader mortgage topics.

Since co-founding the business, David has watched Online Mortgage Advisor grow over the years and helped assemble a network of more than 150 brokers, launch an accredited training academy and invest in technology to further our expansion.

Career Background

In addition to his association with Online Mortgage Advisor, David co-founded Merchant Advice Service in 2016, providing non-biased card payment advice to businesses across the UK, acting as a conduit between customers and merchant services.


Bachelor of Engineering (BEng), Mechanical Engineering – University of Derby.
