New CEO appointment, City of Prospect
Nigel McBride has been appointed as the new Chief Executive Officer for City of Prospect and has brought along his passion for supporting businesses to thrive.
Nigel, a prominent business leader and senior lawyer, stepped down on 2 July after 7 years as head of Business SA. In that role he passionately supported South Australia’s business and employer community, and he championed the state locally, nationally and internationally.
“To me, the City of Prospect exemplifies everything we want to be in South Australia: agile, intelligent, creative, sustainable, globally connected with cutting edge digital infrastructure and very much open for business’’ said Nigel.
“Prospect has long been a leader in digital transformation, business development, and community engagement”, he said. “It has a wonderful inner-urban vibe that’s attracting both young professionals and young families looking for a great lifestyle as well as new business opportunities. I look forward to being a part of the City’s next exciting chapter of growth and success.”
Nigel was thrilled to be able to turn his talents towards the City of Prospect, its residents, and our local business community.
“The recruitment process attracted a strong field with over 100 applicants from around Australia. We were impressed by the high calibre of applicants, but Nigel stood out as an excellent fit for our organisation and the vision we have for the future of our City”, said Mayor David O’Loughlin.
These are indeed exciting and prosperous times for City of Prospect: a new CEO, the opening of Payinthi, and a soon to be revitalised Strategic Plan.
