entrepreneur

Over the years I have come to understand and firmly believe that building strong networks are a vital part of business.. I am a strong advocate for people who think outside the box and encourage anyone who is brave enough to take a chance on themselves as you are not alone!

About

 

I entered the entrepreneurial world in 2008 with the launch of DSA Logistics in conjunction with Steve Jakic, focused on offering premium delivery and transport service around Sydney, Australia. Within the year DSA expanded to multiple drivers, and interstate. At this point, I took the company in hand to manage the business’ exponential growth by focusing on the operations and sales side of the business. Incredible response from customers and demand in the industry led to creation of Pure Choice Australia, focusing on distribution of premium food service supplies to the corporate market. The company launched nationally to great success and continues to lead in the space.

Meanwhile, through opportunities and contacts made throughout the years, together with a good friend and music legend John Martinovic, I launched a management business to help local Australian artists with production, marketing, management and touring opportunities. New Millennium Artists was born in 2012. By 2013, NMA entered the difficult and highly competitive US market, with offices in Beverly Hills, California.

Today, I'm focusing on filling the gap in the corporate catering and supplies market, teaming up with Rory Toemoe in early 2014 and launched a new platform – Clover3 – “a one stop shop for all your catering, kitchen and facility needs”. In line with expansion and lateral expansion, DSA Logistics was re-branded to DSA Group, with focus on bringing a succession of companies that deliver outstanding service and with a priority on looking after staff and business partners.
