AADA is pleased to announce the recruitment of a Policy Officer, Daniel Brown, who together with the Policy Director will advocate for interests of the automotive Dealer industry to all levels of government, and will assist in the operations of AADA and its member services.
Daniel has joined AADA from his previous role as a Policy and Research Officer for the Queensland Tourism Industry Council. He has also conducted very successful internships with a leading public affairs company. His brief career history has already given him a key insight and a strong skill set in advocacy, policy and representation on behalf of a membership-based industry association.
Daniel is very enthusiastic about applying and building upon these skills to achieve the best possible outcomes for franchised automotive Dealers.
Daniel was awarded a Bachelor of Politics and Government, and a Bachelor of Business majoring in International Management, from Griffith University. These qualifications provide a solid foundation to understand the complex relationship between industry and governments. Through university, Daniel demonstrated a strong work ethic, commitment to studies and exceptional writing and verbal skills, which saw him being awarded numerous academic awards, and membership of the Golden Key Honours Society.
Away from work, Daniel has a wide variety of interests. He is a passionate sports fan and regularly plays and watches a range of sports, most notably motorsport, cricket and golf. Coming from a country town in NSW, Daniel also loves being outdoors, and his holidays are usually spent fishing. Importantly for his new role, Daniel is a motoring enthusiast, and has a keen interest in the automotive industry.
Daniel will be based in the Sir Jack Brabham Automotive Centre of Excellence, in Brisbane, and will be working full-time. He is always interested in talking with Dealers to improve his understanding of the automotive Dealer industry to ensure the best possible outcome from his work.
