As a lifetime resident of Essendon, David has immense local knowledge. Employed in the aviation industry with Ansett Airlines for 36 years, David commenced with Pennisi, upon entering semi-retirement in 1998.

David now works part time with the Sales Team. His role includes liaising with Vendors, Purchasers and suppliers in organising various property inspections, Final Inspections, and Building & Pest Inspections. Nominated at the Australasian Real Estate Awards for Sales Supporter of the Year in 2000, 2001 and 2003, David finally took victory home as the Winner of this award in 2003.

Married with three children, one of which was Pennisi's longest serving employee, Janine, David is an active member of the local community. A member of the Rotary Club of Keilor East and current Chairman of Rotary Oversees Medical Aid for Children (ROMAC). David is interested in all sports, particularly horse racing where he has had some success as a part owner of several city winners, not to mention his success with the TAB!

David's commitment to his family, friends and the Pennisi team is second to none. He strives to provide the upmost client care in his business life just as he would his personal and given that client care is paramount at Pennisi, David certainly fits the bill.
