FIDC announce Lou Ellis is new Development Manager


At the start of year the Corporation began recruiting to fill the role of Development Manager following the departure of Michael Poole in December 2018. At the closing date a strong field of local & overseas applicants were shortlisted.

Business Development Officer Lou Ellis was one of the successful applicants shortlisted for the interview process.  The day after her interview, Lou and family hopped on the Airbridge for her six week holiday England.  While soaking up the summer sun, Lou received word that she had been successful in her application and would be the new Development Manager - subject to signing a contract on her return.

Lou has now settled into her new role as Development Manager, and is embracing this new challenge, or, as the Development team like to put it “just getting on with it.”
