CO-FOUNDER OF BUBS
AUSTRALIA LIMITED

Anthony is a highly successful entrepreneur who has founded and developed several businesses, primarily in the food and hospitality sector.

Most recently Anthony is the Co-Founder of infant food company Bubs Australia Limited. Founded in Sydney in 2006, Bubs Australia produces Australian-made premium infant nutrition and dairy products. Bubs products are sold throughout Australia in Coles, Woolworths, Chemist Warehouse, Costco and Big W, and are exported to China, South East Asia, and the Middle East.

Anthony was instrumental in developing Bubs from start-up, to public company (ASX: BUB) with a market capitalization of $700 million. Anthony oversaw the company’s acquisition strategy that grew BUBS to be Australia’s leading producer of goat dairy products and the country’s only vertically integrated producer of goat milk infant formula. He also oversaw the product development that earned Bubs the coveted Food Challenge Award for ‘Best of the Best’, an award traditionally won by multi-national companies.

Prior to starting Bubs, Anthony was the founder and CEO of Shakespeares Pies, which he grew into a chain of more than 20 stores throughout Australia and Canada with annual turnover in excess of over $50 million.

Anthony has over 35 years experience building businesses and developing world class teams.
