Established in November 2013, the Committee for Adelaide was run by Tim Horton who was succeeded by current General Manager Matt Clemow.
Colin Goodall, Chair of the Committee for Adelaide said “Matt has done a superb job as General Manager, boosting the organisation’s membership, profile and led the charge on a number of debates in Adelaide. The consequence of this success is that we now need to replace the part time role of General Manager with a fully-fledged full-time CEO position.
“This is testament to the wonderful job and commitment Matt has shown to the Committee for Adelaide. Without the success he has brought we would have stagnated, instead we are growing, we are respected and now we are on the hunt for the right person to lead the organisation during its next phase of growth”. Mr Goodall said.
“The reality is 2016/17 is going to be both challenging and exciting for the state and it is important that the Committee for Adelaide plays a leadership role.
“The Committee for Adelaide is not your run-of-the-mill think tank and we certainly are not a single industry association. Our membership ranges from Big 4 accounting firms through to restaurant owners and we support organisations like The Mill. The glue that binds us all together is a love of our city and a commitment to its future. We are cut from a different cloth and that is who we are looking for to step into the role of CEO”.
“This is not a blue pin stripe suit organisation, the person we are seeking needs to be energetic, have a passion for Adelaide and its future, and have a commitment to our members. We have no preconceived ideas as to where this person will have come from in terms of job or background and are open to all those that want to work with passionate South Australians to make our great state even better”.
Matt Clemow will continue to be involved with the Committee for Adelaide as his position will transition to an executive oversight role.
