Greg brings a wealth of experience to this pivotal role. Since May 2021, he has been at the forefront of AEDA's Business Growth & Investment Attraction initiatives, driving significant advancements in investment attraction programs, supporting the expansion plans of existing businesses, and pioneering start-up programs for new business ventures. His efforts have been instrumental in case managing major economic projects across the city.

His professional background is equally impressive, with robust qualifications in economics complemented by extensive experience in strategic and urban planning. This unique blend of expertise makes Greg exceptionally well-suited to advise and support firms, developers, and organisations looking to invest or expand in the City of Adelaide.
