Morton Philips completes Executive Search for the Committee For Adelaide


Morton Philips, wants to proudly announce the placement of Albert D’Aloia as Engagement & Communications Manager for the Committee for Adelaide, working under Chief Executive Officer Jodie van Deventer. Albert was officially placed in October 2017, with the new position created to increase the Committee’s relevance by driving membership, delivering marketing strategies and managing events and special projects, all while protecting and enhancing the Committee for Adelaide’s brand.

Morton Philips strengthened its relationship with the Committee for Adelaide, while partnering with the Committee for greater brand awareness.

When applying for the role, Albert described himself as being immediately drawn to the Committee for Adelaide’s vision of ‘making Adelaide an even greater city than it already is’. With the Committee being a strong supporter of all dealings in Adelaide and South Australia, the idea of being part of a team with this purpose excited Albert to apply for the role.

Currently in his third month as Engagement & Communications Manager, Albert has enjoyed the access to work with and be surrounded by some of Adelaide’s most credible individuals who all share an enthusiasm towards Adelaide. The Committee is different in that its members are encouraged to ‘roll up their sleeves’ and help make Adelaide a better and stronger city. Albert believes that businesses and community groups are drawn to the aspect of being actively involved. Sharing a large array of networks, the Committee provides access to everyone from community and business leaders to some of the most amazing thinkers on the planet.

With the end of an era with Holden closing, the Committee views an enormous potential as Adelaide’s economy transitions from traditional manufacturing to advanced manufacturing with a revitalised service industry. South Australia’s experience in renewable energy is leading to the creation of new industries while Adelaide is a hot bed for social enterprises, start-ups and innovators. When asked about further Adelaide strengths, the Committee responded with agribusiness, health, and defence. The Committee is aiming to raise the profile of Adelaide and its potential through projects including their Boards Without Borders initiative.

When asked about his experience with Morton Philips, Albert admitted that going through job application processes “are never easy”, however Morton Philips’ “professionalism and willingness to genuinely help” put him at ease.

Morton Philips want to congratulate Jodie and Albert on the successful placement, and look forward to continuing the partnership with Alison Surjan Director Consulting Services Morton Philips now recently appointed to the Board of Directors with the Committee for Adelaide.
