David Nevell was born in 1963 in the small, historic New South Wales country town of Rylstone. He grew up with his mother, father and two older sisters, where it was all hands on deck to help run the family farm after school. Many days were spent planting new crops and ‘rouseabouting’ in the farm’s shearing shed. When he was not working, he spent his spare time with friends, scaling the large mountain range which ran through the property.
At the age of 18, David moved to Sydney to extend his education. During his twenties and early thirties he completed an Engineering Certificate at Sydney TAFE, a mechanical engineering degree at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) and a MBA Executive at the Australian Graduate School of Management (AGSM). During this time, David trained in the art of Taekwondo before starting a successful business teaching students in a number of clubs across Sydney.
David gained 14 years of corporate experience in manufacturing, operations and sales team management, before he left the security of the corporate world and founded Inventors HQ Australia Pty Ltd, a business established to provide solutions for inventors and investors to commercialise inventions. Since then, he has established a number of other businesses and introduced a number of inventions into the market.
David is fanatical about golf, travelling, skiing and fly fishing and heads off whenever he can to pursue these passions. He lives in Balmain, Sydney, where he enjoys time relaxing with friends and family.
