David Berger, Co-Founder, Jimmy Brings

David is a pioneer in the Australian on-demand economy. As co-founder of Suppertime (foodora) and Jimmy Brings David has created two innovative companies that have transformed the way Australian's consume food and alcohol.

David has always displayed an entrepreneurial spirit; his first venture, at age 9, was to set up a cold drinks stand outside the entrance of the Royal Easter Show. Undercutting the vendors in the Show he did a brisk trade until being shut down by the police. Not to be deterred David launched his first business in furniture import and retail before setting his sites on the booming online economy. After leading up the product team at RedBalloon, Australia's premier online gifting platform David set out on his own founding a number of businesses in the home delivery space.

In the process of having his restaurant delivery business (Suppertime) acquired by Rocket Internet David has experienced growing a business 15x in the space of 6 months. In his role as  David oversaw  a rapid geographical expansion, a complete system migration, a rebrand to foodora and grew a team from 30 to over 300.

As current COO of Jimmy Brings David has full responsibility over the company's brand identity, website/app design and development, proprietary logistics system and team of drivers. In this role he has built a rapidly growing company that delivers alcohol in, on average, under 30 minutes with a net promoter score above 80.

Whilst not at work David enjoys spending time with his wife, 2 year old daughter and going to the beach. David is passionate about cooking, politics and nice design.

David holds a MBA from the Australian Graduate School of Management and is a yellow belt in Tae Kwan Do.
