Kym has over 23 years’ experience in the water and environment industry having worked in roles in program management, regional service delivery, regulation, policy, and compliance with the South Australian Government. He recently managed the Regional Delivery of the South Australian River Murray Sustainability (SARMS) Program and has worked with agribusiness industries within the South Australian River Murray corridor on irrigation related projects since 2008.

Raised in the Riverland at Loxton, Kym has been involved with many organisations within the Murraylands and Riverland including the River Murray Advisory Committee during the Millennium drought (2008-2013) and is an active member within irrigation and community networks.

Kym’s interest is to be involved in delivering needed solutions to industry at a regional scale. His aim is to work as a broker between researchers and industry to manage outcomes delivered through the Lower Basin Hub and to facilitate the translation and adoption of One Basin CRC research into practice. He has worked with regional communities across South Australia on water allocation, water policy, drought support and emergency management responses to develop practical outcomes and brings extensive facilitation, engagement, communication and strategic skills to this project.
