A familiar face in the South Burnett has been appointed the new CEO at Toowoomba Surat Basin Enterprise (TSBE).
Ali Davenport was the former Darling Downs general manager for Southern Cross Austereo and was a frequent visitor to their Kingaroy radio station, Hit 89.1 FM.
TSBE executive chairman Shane Charles said Ms Davenport was very highly regarded in the region, very well connected locally and would be a fantastic addition to the team.
“Ali is an outstanding candidate who has the skills and experience we believe will take TSBE and our members on our journey of further success and growth,” he said.
Ms Davenport’s most recent position has been general manager at the Cairns Post newspaper.
Toowoomba Mayor Paul Antonio congratulated Ms Davenport.
“Ali has a strong passion and history with our region and I am confident she will continue TSBE’s success in linking local business with opportunity to foster collaboration and growth,” Mayor Antonio said.
“She will be a great ambassador for our region.”
The appointment of Ali Davenport as TSBE’s CEO completes an extensive three-month campaign that was led by TSBE Deputy Chairman, Rob Hart.
Ms Davenport will start her new role in a few weeks.
