The Ceo Club is the brainchild of experienced businessman David Rasmussen.
He had the idea for the club after he launched his fifth company with his wife – a
graphic design and website provider.
David wanted to join a business club for experienced and established professionals
but did not feel that his needs were met by the clubs he considered joining.
Originally from Denmark but now living in Warwackshire, David spent six years as a
professional triathlete, taking part in competitions across Europe.
In 1989 he launched his first company – designing computer programs for sport and
He then passed his HGV test and purchased his first truck and started driving contract
work for a local haulage firm. One truck soon became 30 and then 60 trailers in less
than two years as David’s business grew.
Then in 1992 David kick-started his latest business – his own exhibitions company.
He specialised in the delivery and assembly of custom-made exhibition stands for
exhibitions centres across the globe. The business also provided a dedicated
exhibitions workforce for companies to hire. David’s firm had an annual turnover of
£13million and 130 staff. He sold the company in 2004 and moved to the UK.
Being a high-flier, David was then intent on fulfilling his lifetime interest in flying in
late 2004 when he started commercial flying training at Coventry Airport. He now
teaches people how to fly in his role as a ground school instructor at Coventry
