RIC one step closer to opening its HQ in Orange, NSW

​The Regional Investment Corporation is one step closer to opening its headquarters in Orange with construction underway at its office space at 122–124 Kite Street.

Interim CEO Matt Ryan gave Minister for Agriculture David Littleproud and local federal member Andrew Gee a tour of the premises today.

“Everyone – from our architects and council through to local contractors and suppliers – has been extremely supportive of the RIC and doing all they can to make sure our establishment in Orange is as swift and seamless as possible,” Matt Ryan said.

“We’ve been embraced by the local community in this whole process.

“All things going to plan, we think we’ll have the fit out complete in December to coincide with our RIC workforce starting soon after.”

Applications for the RIC’s range of agri-finance, corporate and executive roles also closed on Monday this week with over 340 applications received.

“We’ve had applications from every state and territory including over 85 from the Orange region itself,” Matt Ryan said.

“I’m confident we’re going to build a RIC team that is experienced and skilled, and passionate about making a positive contribution to regional Australia.”

Matt Ryan was also in Orange today to deliver an information session on the RIC and its farm business loans to local accountants, banks, farmers and financial advisors.
