David commenced his career in audit over 25 years ago with KPMG. After qualifying as a Chartered Accountant, David travelled to North America where he worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers initially in audit of multinational companies before moving into business recovery services.

On returning to Australia, David formed Walker, Sharp & Co where he specialised in taxation and advisory services to small and medium sized businesses and developed into a highly successful practice of growing clients before joining Richard Hill in 2006.

David specialises in accounting, taxation and business strategy advice for SME businesses with a particular emphasis on business structures addressing asset protections and tax minimisation strategies. David also acts as a Director and performs back office functions for Australian subsidiaries of several large overseas corporations.

David has also become a specialist in valuing Veterinary Practices and has over the past 15 years valued more than 700 practices and consulted to many businesses in the Veterinary industry.

Such a broad range of experience has provided David with the ability to understand the value of cash flow to a business and how best to manage this; experience in reviewing and understanding the key drivers for a business; understanding of the accounting and reporting requirements of international businesses; and, most importantly, the ability to connect with business owners and managers to understand their requirements and address their concerns.
