David Downs

A native of Whanganui, David Downs began his working life as an actor, writer and comedian and was the co-founder with Jon Bridges and others of The Classic Comedy & Bar in Auckland. He left this behind to start a second career in IT, which he stuck with for nearly 20 years, including a stint for Microsoft in Asia. David’s strong interest in innovative companies, and his pride in New Zealand, led him back to Aotearoa and his third career at New Zealand Trade & Enterprise, where he helps local businesses develop internationally. David lives in Devonport, Auckland, with his TV producer wife Katherine and his three fast-growing boys Jack, Joshua and Toby.
