Kieren Dell Appointed New Chair of RDA Mid North Coast.
Kieren Dell, Port Macquarie resident and businessman has been appointed the new Chair of Regional Development Australia Mid North Coast (RDAMNC).
The new position was recently announced by Assistant Minister for Regional Development and Territories, Nola Marino and will run until 30 June 2025.
“Mr Dell will lead RDAMNC under a refreshed Charter that focuses on driving investment and local procurement opportunities, and through this, creating jobs and economic growth for our regions”
“I look forward to working with Mr Dell and the RDAMNC members and staff over the coming years and encourage the community to reach out to their RDA to discuss how it can help business succeed.” Minister Marino said.
Mr Dell is the CEO of Majestic Cinemas, a business that he started 18 years ago by purchasing the Nambucca Heads Cinema with a group of partners and investors.
The business now includes cinemas in Port Macquarie, Sawtell, Nambucca Heads, Kempsey, Inverell, Singleton, The Entrance and Nambour in Qld, and employs over 100 staff.
“I am excited about taking on the position of Chair of RDAMNC and gaining a better understanding of how I can use this appointment to help improve the region.” said Mr Dell
