Andrew Kay CEO Business SA – ‘Finding Purpose and the Role of Business SA’
December 13, 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm$50.00
After a corporate career that took him from Adelaide to London and eventually McLaren Vale, Andrew Kay recently joined Business SA as the new CEO. Andrew has had many years’ experience working across the financial services, FMCG and wine sectors and is determined to play a role in projecting his belief that South Australia is one of the best places in the world to do business.
He has worked with family businesses, SMEs and multinationals and most recently was at the helm of Wirra Wirra Vineyards for 15 years. Andrew has a Bachelor of Business degree, an MBA in International Business and in 2014 spent time at Harvard Business School on a scholarship proved by the South Australian Industry Leaders Fund, so it is only fitting that he finds himself at Business SA keen to work with business and Government to create an environment where local operators have every opportunity to achieve their dreams.
Andrew sits on the Board of the Botanic Gardens and State Herbarium where he is also Chair of the Botanic Gardens Foundation, as well as the Board of Centennial Park. In his spare time, he is a frustrated but loyal Adelaide Crows supporter, a cricket tragic, music buff and self-described very ordinary guitar player. He is married with two adult children and two infantile pugs.
