Welcome our new Policy Analysts – Who to reach out to!

Recently we welcomed 2 new Policy and Market Analysts to the ADBA team; Wasundara Doradeniya and Joanna Goad. They will mainly be engaging with policy advisors from different government departments to keep on top of the upcoming policy development relevant to each sector. Alongside this, they will also support the members with enquiries in their respective areas while maintaining the AD database. Wasundara and Jo will also lead the coordination of several working groups, while also supporting our Lead Analyst, Leanne Williams, in a range of areas.
