Business NSW has thanked Business Illawarra Executive Director Adam Zarth for his service to the Illawarra business community. 

“Business NSW would like to thank Adam Zarth for his six years of service to the Illawarra business community following the announcement of his departure as Executive Director of Business Illawarra,” a Business NSW spokesperson said.

“In his time leading the organisation, Mr Zarth has successfully advocated for the upgrade of Picton Road, the delivery of the Mount Ousley Interchange, the development of a government business case for the Illawarra Sport and Entertainment precinct and a government commitment to a rail network masterplan that includes a future rail link to South Western Sydney.

“As importantly, he has worked with members, stakeholders and governments at all levels to advocate for the creation of more affordable housing for our region’s key workers and for the development and expansion of emerging industry sectors for the Illawarra in clean energy and defence.

“In every forum available, Mr Zarth has been a powerful advocate for the Illawarra and its business community, and has delivered numerous major events - including the annual Illawarra Business Awards - to celebrate the achievements of business across the region.”

Mr Zarth said:

“Today I announce that I am moving on from my position as Executive Director of Business Illawarra, with immediate effect.

“Since stepping into this role, I have been continually inspired by the passion, resilience, and innovation within our business community.

“I know that this resilience to serve the local business community will continue in the immediate term under the leadership of Paula Martin. Paula has held many senior roles in Business NSW and is ideally positioned to continue the good work of Business Illawarra under a new structure.

“I would like to thank Business NSW and express my support in the organisation and its future direction under Paula’s direction.”
