Regional Development Australia Moreton Bay announces appointment of new Committee

Earlier this year, Regional Development Australia (RDA) Moreton Bay called for nominations from highly motivated business leaders with a vision, drive, and passion for regional development, to help shape Moreton Bay Region.

After receiving a number of nominations and conducting a thorough recruitment process, a new Committee was appointed in August, explains Chair Kelvin Patch.
“We were spoilt for choice with the interest we received and the quality of nominations, once again reinforcing the outstanding business and community acumen operating within the Moreton Bay Region,” Mr Patch explained.

With a footprint that matches the boundary of the Moreton Bay Regional Council, recognised as one of the fastest growing populations in the country, the newly appointed Committee will play a hands-on role facilitating economic development opportunities and investment for Moreton Bay Region.

“With the appointment of the three new members joining our seven existing Committee members, we are confident that this group will play a significant role in strengthening our relationships with government and communities, as well as working at a strategic level to make a difference to the 29,000+ businesses that call Moreton Bay Region home.”

The new Committee members include Cr Jodie Shipway, Natassia Wheeler and Zach Wright.

“We’re so excited to welcome Jodie, Natassia and Zach to the committee, and they’ve already hit the ground running, each bringing a unique skillset, background and experience to the role which will undoubtably support businesses and contribute to achieving RDA Moreton Bay priorities.”

Continuing the Committee for this term will be Kelvin Patch as Chair, Sharon Armstrong as Deputy Chair as well as Mike Brady APM, Professor Karen Becker, Craig Doyle and Craig Hewlett.
