The managing director of Danwood Wales is Ian Eidman, a name which will be familiar to many of you. Ian played for Cardiff Rugby Club from 1977 to 1988 and for Wales from 1983 to 1986. He also represented the Barbarians and served on the Cardiff Rugby Club Committee in the early 1990's before the game went professional.
Danwood Wales are delighted to have become Premier Club members. Ian Eidman says, "I am enjoying watching the Blues from a prime seating location coupled with the excellent bar and restaurant facilities. It is a great way to entertain present and future clients." He added, "The Premier Club is superb for business networking and I have also enjoyed meeting up with many old friends and contacts, before and after the game in the spacious bar area. I would certainly recommend it to other business people".
