BCom (Hons 1st class) Management Science (University of Auckland), MCom (Distinction) Management Science (University of Auckland)

David is a Partner at Synergia.  Since joining the team in 1999, has worked across a wide range of health and social care environments. He is based in our Auckland office.

Over the last 25 years David has worked in New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom on a wide range of issues. This has given David exposure to a broad range of issues and challenges and a wide base of knowledge to draw on. To look for solutions to complex issues that matter to me such as mental illness, disability and suicide prevention.

David’s approach is based on a strong belief that together is better. By working together and harnessing each other skills, knowledge and experience 1 plus 1 can make 3. He gets the most out of working with others, in collaboration exploring issues, discussing ideas and bringing different perspectives to the table.

David has a strong analytics background and uses data – hard or soft to inform the investigation, design and implementation of solutions. David believes it is critically important that we move past opinions and bias to decisions that are grounded in theory and the evidence.

David loves spending time with his wife and three kids, is very much a kid at heart, likes a good dad joke, playing guitar, watching sport and singing in the car.
