Lloyd said today he was delighted to work with the committee, which describes itself as an apolitical group that wants to reinvent and reimagine Adelaide.

He replaces the previous chair, James Blackburn, a partner in consulting firm PwC.

“This is a future-focussed group, dedicated to meeting 21st-century challenges and opportunities,” he said.

“Adelaide is a fantastic city, agile, globally-connected and really well-placed to make the most of national and global opportunities both economically and culturally.

“The Committee for Adelaide, under strong leadership by the outgoing chair James Blackburn and the people who established its important role in Adelaide, Ian Smith and Colin Goodall, has made an impact in significant policy areas such migration system reform and in underpinning future infrastructure agreements through the City Deals.”

He said the group had a “strategic role” to play in Adelaide’s evolution as a “successful, sustainable global capital”.

The Committee for Adelaide describes itself as an apolitical, independent and non-sector specific group which brings together businesses and community groups “united by their passion for South Australia; who recognise Adelaide is a great place to live but who want to make it better by creating opportunities for economic, social and cultural growth”.
