David Valmorbida

Executive Chairman

As a member of the family, David grew up in and out of Conga Foods since his teenage years. In 2011, after starting his professional life outside the family business, he was appointed to the role of Group CEO of Conga’s parent company, and in 2014 became Executive Chairman, incorporating the Conga Foods CEO role from 2015.

He has passion, drive, and expertise, with hands-on experience across the Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG), food service and 3PL businesses. With a previous career in management consulting at Boston Consulting Group (BCG), he is skilled in various areas of strategic planning, mergers & acquisitions, cultural transformation, and corporate governance across a wide range of industries including aviation, financial services, automotive, FMCG/retail, public sector, construction, logistics, and mining. He also held various roles at Mercedes Car Group and is currently President of the Australian Olive Oil Association (AOOA), and Director of the Melbourne International Jazz Festival.

David is a food fanatic, with a philosophy of creativity and adaptation in the kitchen. Despite some fancy cooking skills, he still believes nothing beats a lovingly made 4-hour ragu for a bowl of pasta, some homemade bread and a good bottle of red.

David holds a Bachelor of Business Administration (Bus. Mgmt.) / Bachelor of Engineering (Aerospace) double degree from RMIT, a Masters of Business Administration (Dean’s List) from INSEAD and is an Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) graduate.
