After six years in Sydney and seventeen years away from home, David decided to return to Adelaide and took up the position of Director, Marketing and Communications with the South Australian Tourism Commission. Here, with a rejuvenated approach to destination marketing, he launched highly awarded and recognised integrated campaigns for Kangaroo Island - Let Yourself Go, Barossa - Be Consumed, Adelaide - Breathe, the much loved regional ‘Best Backyard’ campaign and the content driven ‘Through Local Eyes’ campaign.

Further to his role with the SATC and at the request of the Premier, David was seconded to the Economic Development Board as a key consultant in the development of South Australia’s new state brand, overseeing the research, design and launch of the brand prior to the creation of Brand SA.
