New Regional Director for Business NSW

Scott Goold

Business NSW has appointed a new Regional Director for the Central Coast.

Scott Goold replaces Paula Martin, who has moved to a new role within Business NSW responsible for business advocacy across Regional NSW.

“We are delighted to welcome Scott Goold to the Central Coast Business NSW team,” Martin said.

“Business NSW is investing heavily into its regional structure so that business leaders gain a bigger voice and their contribution is amplified and heard by decision makers at local, state and federal levels.

“Scott is ideally placed to help our business community to achieve this goal.

“The Central Coast is facing major challenges to achieve its goal of being a leading, competitive region to live work and play.

“The current housing shortage and ongoing labour and skills shortages on the Central Coast are presenting new challenges to how business grow and create jobs.

“For business to grow, they need to be supported by a local landscape that accelerates development, invests in its visitor economy and delivers catalytic infrastructure projects like the Gosford waterfront.

“The September Council election is a good opportunity to ensure that future local government leaders hear the voice of business and take growth and prosperity for our region seriously. A growth mindset will be critical to jobs growth and future planning.

“Scott has the right experience to represent our regional and business needs and take our region to the next level of growth.”

Goold has experience across financial services, retail, manufacturing and international trade.

He has owned and operated a chain of nutraceutical retail stores across Sydney and most recently held economic development roles in local and state government.

His most recent role was with the Department of Regional NSW as Deputy Director for Regional Development, Hunter and Central Coast.

He is supported by a newly elected Business NSW Regional Advisory Council with Barbara Ketley re-elected as President and Matthew Lusted appointed as Vice President.
