David’s passion for food started as a young entrepreneurial 12 year old on the south coast of England where he would spend the Summer months catching prawns and selling them to the local fish monger and assisting his late father selling the garden produce at the local Summer markets. In 1995 David pioneered the chilled ready meals and pre prepared foods era for Coles supermarkets prior to working his way through the buying ranks within the delicatessen and then re-engineering the instore bakery business between 2000 - 2004. David then led the establishment of the Wild Bean Café offer for BP Australia and was a key leadership team member in the transformation of BP Australia’s convenience retail business.

In 2016 David established DJB Food Group with offices in Melbourne, London and Shanghai and has since partnered with over 50 entrepreneurs, SME's as well as global firms. Some of these brands are well known Australian success stories. David has recently established Creme, a food industry brand identity and design agency as well as Food Mover a food industry digital mobile app and web based platform.
