David has a wealth of experience having developed several significant and complex projects in Sydney and Canberra. David’s focus is on high-quality, unique projects, some of which have included early warehouse conversions, commercial strata, bulky goods retail, and high rise apartment and townhouse developments.
Prior to founding Wallum Partners, David ran his own investment and development company. He also spent four years as a senior consultant on the Nishi Project in Canberra’s New Action which comprises a 6-Star Green Star office tower, an 800-seat 8 cinema complex, a boutique 5 star hotel and 229 residential apartments. The project has received world-wide acclaim and many Australian and International awards.
David received a BSc (Arch) & BArch in 1978 from the University of Sydney, but decided not to practice architecture in pursuit of running and building his family consumer electronics company. David grew the business to be one of the most successful in Australia following which it was acquired by a publicly listed company.
David maintains a healthy balance between his work, love of cycling, snow skiing and travelling. He also greatly enjoys spending time with his wife and growing extended family.
