Anne Lawrence - Head of Industry Advancement Economic Development Morton Bay Regional Council

In January 2021, Anne was appointed as Head of Industry Advancement at Moreton Bay Regional Council. Her key responsibilities are to provide leadership in the delivery of the Moreton Bay Regional Council’s economic development agenda, leading the delivery program for industry advancement as outlined in the Regional Economic Development Strategy.

Previously, Anne was Head of Industry Advancement at Sunshine Coast Council. For the past five years she led a large team that helped support the growth and prosperity of that region’s 30,000+ businesses as well as helping accelerate the impact of significant infrastructure projects including the International Broadband Cable project, a Greenfields CBD precinct and an international airport.

Anne’s leadership guided the development and successful delivery of programs in partnership with a collaborative network of strategic partnerships. An example of the impact Anne had in this role is as the principal architect of the Sunshine Coast region’s innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem, which achieved 65% growth over the past three years.

Prior to working in local government, Anne held a variety of senior roles with private enterprise and with CSIRO, as well as successfully creating two businesses of her own.
