Northern Economic Leaders

The Northern Economic Leaders (NEL) is an apolitical business leaders’ network that supports growth in northern Adelaide both socially and economically. NEL provides a forum for leaders to share their collective knowledge, influence government policy and bring together firms to make northern Adelaide the best place in South Australia to run a business.

Operating as a group since 2007 this group has now formalised its operations to be an incorporated association operating regionally across northern Adelaide. This follows strong interest in having stronger business leadership in northern Adelaide and with the development of the Northern Economic Plan and a cross-government focus on northern Adelaide, there was a strong push from business to formalise this group and evolve it into a regional structure.

Our board 

The inaugural board was announced on 21 March 2017. The board has a good cross section of business interests including defence, manufacturing, food, property, and aged, disability and business services. Both large and small businesses are represented on the Board. Find out who they are.
