    Prior to David owing his own business, he worked as a systems administrator & bookkeeper for Fifteenth Spirit Pty Ltd. Fifteenth Spirit Pty Ltd owned a retail area franchise operating three Mobil petrol stations and two mechanical workshops. David was in charge of the company accounts and overseeing the day-to-day operations of the businesses.  

    During this time, David:

    • Managed the day-to-day accounts including GST, BAS, accounts receivable/payable and financial reporting. 
    • Implemented an operations manual for staff to ensure consistent high standards.
    • Relayed and re-merchandised all stores, significantly improving shop sales and profitability.
    • Transformed business practices, implementing accurate bookkeeping and inventory management.
    • Trained team leaders and console staff in new business policies & procedures.

    Due to the significant lift in the store's sales and presentation, David was selected by Mobil Quix to operate a petrol station in Bulleen.  

    In 2003 David started Cain Energy Pty Ltd in order to operate this station, since then, Cain Energy has operated a total of eight stores, and in 2009 had a gross turnover in excess of $20M. 

    In October 2010 Mobil sold its retail arm to 7-Eleven Australia which included the sites operated by Cain Energy. David agreed to operate the stores for 7-Eleven on a short term agreement as he did not wish to take on a franchise.

    During this time, David:

    • Managed 10-42 staff at any one time including casual, part time and full time employees.
    • Mentored 10 senior team members including office staff.
    • Developed systems, policies & checklists to ensure consistently high standards.
    • Efficiently managed accurate business accounts including payroll, GST, BAS, accounts payable/receivable and financial reporting.
    • Developed custom business intelligence tools to track performance on a monthly basis.
    • Accurately managed stock inventory levels including regular stock-takes.
    • Ensured staff were adequately trained in OH&S, security procedures, fuel management, food safety and all other aspects of the day-to-day store operations.
    • Increased all store's average shop sales. (increases ranged from 5% -60% per store)

    With the cessation of the petrol station business David, decided to take the business in a new direction and started CE Bookkeeping. David enjoys business and keeping the books and is passionate for businesses to succeed.
