David Mandel President

David played squash for nearly thirty years at club level. This was from his university days at the University of Sussex, England, until ten years ago in Australia, when his knee failed. And in between, when in America he not only played but also commenced training as a referee, an activity that lapsed upon his return to Melbourne.

David has 25 years of employment by multinationals in the UK, USA and Australia, rising to running the Australia subsidiary of a listed USA Fortune 500 company. While the functional skills were finance and treasury, the strategic and analytical abilities have driven the contributions he has made in the later and now current roles.
