Drawing on 25+ years’ experience in start-up and corporate strategy formulation, transformative leadership and technology commercialisation, David understands how to drive business growth and expansion in dynamic markets. Using experience leading over $500M of M&A deals for PepsiCo in Asia Pacific, fundraising and institutional fund management (emerging tech) and more recent experience in brokering opportunity for Australian businesses with Austrade, David thrives in driving innovation and help businesses to embrace and find opportunity in disruption.
Critically, David uses the ability to find the best ideas from disparate sources and reframe them within a new context.
Built on a best in class foundation in strategy, corporate finance and business expansion gained from roles with Booz & Co and PepsiCo, David bring order to chaos, communicate with clarity and lead with impact. Combined with a strong understanding of fiduciary responsibility and governance, shown in my most recent role with Austrade, holding responsibility for 80 offices and 13 consulates globally, and >20 board appointments across corporate, not-for-profits and government, David is a ‘safe’ yet bold thinker in driving development and innovation.
