David Garrett is the President of Summit International and has been the Head of London operations since he and his partners Patrick Wachsberger and Bob Hayward took over Summit Entertainment Group in November 1993. From that time, he has served as International Supervisor over Summit-produced, co-produced and acquired titles including American Pie, Memento, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, the 2006 Cannes official selection Babel and UK Productions such as Lock Stock And Two Smoking Barrels, Keeping Mum and the Mike Leigh film Happy-Go-Lucky.

Born and educated in England where he graduated in Philosophy and Modern Languages (Spanish) from Magdalen College, Oxford, Garrett began his career in the industry in 1981 by producing and marketing documentary films. He was a pioneer in the early days of UK cable and satellite TV development and launched several channels, finally serving as Head of Acquisitions for the The Movie Channel on BSB, prior to setting up the London offices of The Summit Group in 1991.
