RDALC Welcomes Evan Flint as New Chair
The Hon. Nola Marino MP and Regional Development Australia Limestone Coast (RDALC) welcome Mr Evan Flint to the position of Chair of the RDALC Board, which he will hold until to 30 June 2025.
“Mr Flint will lead RDALC under a refreshed Charter that focuses their role on driving investment and local procurement opportunities and through this, creating jobs and economic growth for the Limestone Coast region,” said Assistant Minister Marino.
“I look forward to working with Mr Flint and the RDALC members and staff over the coming years and encourage the community to reach out to their RDA to discuss how it can help business succeed,” she said.
Mr Flint said he was excited by the challenge and opportunities presented with the commencement of a new year.
“All of my work life has been in primary production, and I have also been active in local government and sporting groups. I am keen to continue my contribution to our local area, and to support businesses and organisations to thrive” said Mr Flint. “The opportunity to extend and expand on my experience to support the Limestone Coast community is one that I’m looking forward to immensely,” he said.
“I am conscious that our businesses and industry are still significantly affected by the COVID pandemic,” Mr Flint said. “There is much to be achieved and I am keen for RDALC to maintain a genuine role in supporting local businesses and industry to secure a reliable workforce and build a resilient business community,” he said.
“Our previous chair, Peter Gandolfi brought great experience in small business and local government to the Board and he has left RDALC in a productive and effective position entering into 2021,” said David Wheaton, CEO RDALC.
“I am looking forward to working with Evan on our regional priorities as RDALC continues to develop solutions for economic development in the Limestone Coast,” Mr Wheaton said.
Regional Development Australia Limestone Coast (RDALC) is part of a national network which brings business, government and community leaders together to support and broker regional development opportunities in the region.
