About RECMAN Consulting Limited

This is about David Pryde

David Pryde (MRIM) is a passionate Records & Information Management (RIM) professional, an information governance champion with a focus on promoting the “priceless” value of information assets and how they should be securely managed and exploited.


I founded RECMAN Consulting Ltd when I came to the realisation that for most of my professional career I have been “preaching to the converted”. That is, government recordkeepers who already have a culture and ethic for good records management supported by a compliance framework.


“I want to take the skills, knowledge and experience that I have developed as a government recordkeeper to all organisations, public and private to improve records and information management capability across New Zealand”.

Good governance through RIM

RIM Building Blocks

Complete, comprehensive, accurate records with integrity are the “building blocks” on which any organisation can strive to improve efficiency, drive continuous business improvement, engage with new technology and as a by-product comply with regulatory requirements.
