David John Evans (23 April 1935 – 21 October 2008) was an English business executive and Conservative politician.

Born in Edmonton, Evans came from a working-class background and attended Tottenham Technical College. As a youngster he showed promise as a footballer and cricketer and played for Aston Villa, although without making any first team appearances, between 1950 and 1954. An opening batsman, he also played for Gloucestershire CCC and Warwickshire CCC at cricket, although, again, without making any first team appearances.

In 1956 Evans married Janice Masters in Edmonton. They had three children, born later in 1956, in 1960 and in 1972. In 1960 Evans borrowed £500 to found his own industrial cleaning company, called Exclusive Office Cleaning, which later became Brengreen Holdings. He sold this for 32 million pounds in 1986. Four years later, in 1990, he formed Broadreach, another industrial cleaning company, which he was chairman of for 12 years.
