“I’m thrilled to assume this role and more so about the opportunities for the RDA in this region in the coming years,” Paul said. 

“There’s great scope at RDA Sunshine Coast to expand on its key leadership role in engaging our local community in change and innovation.”

RDA Sunshine Coast Chair Carol Cashman said the organisation was delighted to have secured a CEO with Paul’s extensive and diverse skills and experience.

“Paul will be a wonderful leader in this role and we warmly welcome him to our team.”
