The wisdom of our years of experience…
Successfully completing the next assignment provides the motivation, however the vital job satisfaction component comes from the long-term relationships that result.
In the corporate phase of his professional life, David had a successful career in Human Resources working with multi-national corporations in Australia and South East Asia spanning engineering, construction, project management and natural resources development and operation. With the establishment of Geddes Parker & Partners in 1989, David has successfully used this background to develop an extensive Executive Search and Selection practice.
Achieving membership of the Cornerstone International Group in 2013 as the Australian representative, Cornerstone Search Australia was created with offices in Sydney and Melbourne. Cornerstone Search Australia has brought together the Executive Search capabilities of Geddes Parker & Partners in Sydney with those of Allan Rae and Rae Consulting in Melbourne.
David is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors. With an active interest in Asian Regional business, and a number of years on the Council of the Hong Kong Australia Business Association, David is now a Member of the Executive Committee (NSW Division) of the Australia China Business Council.
Away from the commercial world, the hard core genre band of his university student son is still very much part of his life. His role has changed in recent years and instead of transporting gear to gigs across Sydney, David’s role is now reduced to making sure the SUV is washed and filled with petrol, his son now having the joys of finding parking spaces in the laneways of Newtown and the backstreets of Annandale.
