David started his career at Bank of America’s Treasury division, where he developed a specialist expertise in financial markets and risk management. In late 190’s he co-founded a funds management business, requiring registration with ASIC (Australian Securities Investment Commission), SFE (Sydney Futures Exchange) and CFTC (Commodity Futures Trading Commission - USA) as well as the NFA (National Futures Association – USA). After selling his interest, David worked with Citibank and the Sydney Futures Exchange and oversaw all Equity Products for both SFE and ASX following its merger.
In 2009, David joined Deloitte’s Restructuring Services division. In addition to completing ARITA’s insolvency education programme (QUT) he also undertook the TMA’s (Turnaround Management Association) post-graduate executive programme (UTS) where he topped the course amongst his peers of accountants, lawyers, bankers and private equity professionals.
In 2017, David became Technical Assessing’s Managing Director and in mid-2020, he led the Management Buyout (MBO) with the key management team. Since the MBO, David has overseen TA’s expansion and delivered a revamped rebrand which included a new positioning statement of Talent Chooses UsTM to better reflect the belief that our people choose to work at TA.
In order to attract, retain and continue to motivate the TA team, David spearheaded the implementation of TA’s Employee Share Ownership Plan (ESOP) in 2022. As TA continues to grow, David is eager to forge a successful future for TA’s key stakeholders; our people, clients, and shareholders and keen to reaffirm TA’s commitment to quality, service, and technical proficiency.
I love working for Technical Assessing because of our fantastic people and clients.
