Andrew Kay joined Business SA in July 2022 as CEO after many years’ experience working across the financial services, FMCG and wine sectors. He has a Bachelor of Business degree, an MBA in International Business and in 2014 spent time at Harvard Business School on a scholarship proved by the South Australian Industry Leaders Fund.
Andrew sits on the Board of the Botanic Gardens and State Herbarium where he is also Chair of the Botanic Gardens Foundation, as well as the Board of Centennial Park.
Working across diverse industries both local and internationally, Andrew has seen how business can be a positive influence in areas of diversity and gender equality, but acknowledges that there is much still to be done on the gender pay gap and provisioning in areas such as superannuation and life insurance for women in the workforce. He is the voice of the business sector on the SA Government’s Gender Pay Gap Task Force that was formed in 2022.
