Creating Great

The Daves – founded in 2006 by David Sampaklis and David Zacharia – began with the goal of being the best retailer in the country. They chose to create something great, and now operate seven Telstra Stores across NSW with a head office in Newcastle.

We now employ over 100 staff who all choose to make a difference every day. We’re committed to our teams and we want to see them thrive. We take the time to understand each others strengths and ambitions and provide real opportunities to grow.

Our teams are also creating awesome experiences for our customers—providing communication and entertainment solutions that make their lives better. We’re owning the experience, our careers and we’re creating something that people will talk about for all the right reasons.
