A successful helmsman in the Flying Dutchman and 505 classes, Burke was 22 when he set up his own sailmaking business in the early 1970s.
Meanwhile, as Burke travelled to regattas overseas, he saw gear that was not available in Australia, things like comfortable dinghy trapeze harnesses.
BIAS Boating Warehouse and Whitworths--run by Burke's former boss Craig Whitworth--were among the first retailers to order Burke gear but over time the company built up national distribution and its products are now sold through hundreds of shops all over Australia.
David Burke, President of BB&E, states that with his extensive background in agriculture, this was a natural choice to fill the need of ag banks, FHA, farmers, accountants, attorneys and the list goes on.
