Meet Our Directors

DAVID HALL
Director & Co-Founder

With a 25-year career as a leading Physiotherapist, David built a professional practice treating some of the most intractable and disabling workplace injuries. His expertise was recognised through his election as Victorian Chairperson of the Occupational Health chapter of Australian Physiotherapy Association, where he served for 6 years before stepping into the role of National Chair in 2016.

As a founding Director of PHW, he draws on subject matter expertise in both Physiotherapy and Psychology and a professional practice extending across group facilitation, organisational development and workplace health and safety.

Outside PHW, his passion for team and community-building sees Dave running group events from trivia nights to silent disco tours for non-profit and corporate clients alike.

RYAN EBERT
Director & Co-Founder

Originally qualified as a Physiotherapist and Rehabilitation Consultant, Ryan spent his early career on the frontline of workplace injury. Frustrated by treating preventable trauma and strain in patients, he became determined to build a business that stemmed the tide of unnecessary injuries and ill-health, moving his focus to product development and undertaking further graduate study in engineering.

Named twice in Australia’s Top 30 Entrepreneurs under 30, Ryan is an energetic leader, educator and founding Director of PHW Group. His commitment to community includes a number of non-executive roles and a lectureship with Swinburne University, where he teaches business and leadership to healthcare students.

In his free time, Ryan can be found pursuing his interest in sustainable property development and evangelising about the transformative potential of the blockchain.
