As the Southern Forests Food Council continues on their path to financial sustainability, the Food Council welcomes a new Independent Chair in Kieran Kinsella, and three skills-based committee members. Outgoing Chair Monica Radomiljac stated “We identified the opportunity to bring in new and different skillsets to our Committee to add value and guidance as we continue to transition to a financially sustainable operation. We underwent a professional recruitment process and were humbled by the calibre of applicants willing to contribute to our project.” Mr Kinsella is in the process of permanently retiring to the Cape’s region of the South West after a long career in State Government senior executive roles, most recently as the Chief Executive Officer of the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority. He has worked in both rural and regional parts of Western Australia gaining a strong insight into the issues facing various primary industries. Mr Kinsella has extensive experience in providing strategic leadership of the planning, delivery and activation of major redevelopment projects. He has served on numerous State Government and not-for-profit Boards and is committed to assisting local not-for-profit organisations whilst becoming involved in the community. Mr Kinsella said “I am pleased to be able to give back to the South West community through worthwhile projects such as the Food Council. Their achievements to date are impressive and the next phase will be an exciting transition.” Joining Mr Kinsella on the Committee of Management are Ben Arnold, Nikki Griffiths, and Nial Twigger with their breadth of business and financial skills. From a base of solid objectives, the Food Council will undertake a branch and roots review as part of its endeavours to transition to sustainability.
