Having developed a solid accounting background at Ernst & Young and Bourne Griffiths Boyd, David identified an opportunity to develop a unique business model based on the traditional concept of successful business relationships, built on trust.

David has developed in depth experience working with clients on business mergers, acquisitions and takeovers with transactions ranging in size from $1m to $100m, in industries as diverse as local professional services organisations to a multi-national chemical importing company.
