Chief Executive Officer
David has felt called to the work of INA as a place to respectfully help the poorest and most marginalised communities and individuals in South and Southeast Asia, the Pacific and Eastern Africa.
Originally from Southern Africa, where he led a rural education NGO for six years, David moved to Australia in 1999. This work in South Africa was recognised by then-President Nelson Mandela (when presenting him with the Presidential Education Award – one per annum), noting that, “One significant strength… is that, in its endeavour to meet new challenges, it has realised the imperative for re-evaluation, re-invention and re-structuring to ensure its effectiveness in delivery.” David subsequently led the parliamentary transformation program funded by the European Union to support transition of the newly democratic South African parliamentary system.
David has been a Chief Operating Officer and head of strategy at Australian universities. In his most recent role as a director in a government department of education.
David currently serves on school wellbeing committees and a national advisory board of Education Horizons. He holds a Masters degree in Adult Education with a focus on adult basic education in rural areas.
