With over 20 years working in healthcare, David recognises the importance that collaboration within the sector can have on the health and lives of patients and their families. Beginning his career in the financial markets and telecommunications industry, David developed a strong financial and commercial acumen. It was the experience of his mother, a career nurse and professor of nursing, which then drew David to healthcare. Having witnessed the great joy she experienced from supporting patients through their journeys within the health system, David entered the field and has never looked back.
In Nexus, David has identified an opportunity to use this unique perspective to play a lead role in ensuring Australians have access to a world-class, sustainable, private healthcare system. With an authentic leadership style based on the core qualities of trust and respect, David engages daily with both hospital leaders and doctors, working closely with them to build a model of high quality, personalised patient care.
To balance his work life, David likes to get away from it all by skiing, SUP surfing, traveling with his wife and teenage son, listening to jazz, hanging out with his adopted greyhound or improvising on the piano.
