In January 2013, David joined the Board of the GSM Association, the global body of carriers and related companies that supports the standardisation and deployment of mobile technology around the world. Former board memberships include co-chair of the Infrastructure and Investment Taskforce of the B20 leadership group, and Chair of IBM ANZ, TelstraClear, Information Technology (IT) Skills Hub, Industry Groups and Basketball Australia.

David is a highly innovative business leader; and, he is also a keen supporter of employee-ownership. He is also known as someone who speaks up about topical issues, including the level of executive remuneration in comparison to others in the Australian workforce.
