Colleen Reardon, Chief Operating Officer

Colleen has been the Chief Operating Officer at the Tasmanian Chamber of Commerce and Industry for the past eight years. Her first role with the organisation was as Education and Training Adviser just over eleven years ago. Since this time Colleen has held a number of roles within the organisation and has built a reputation for getting things done. Colleen has a wealth of knowledge not only in the education and training space but in relation to corporate governance, project development and management and business administration. Colleen is forthright, results focused and excels in getting the best out of the team by providing clear expectations and support to meet them, operating by the principle of ‘the standard you walk past is the standard you accept’. Colleen actively encourages those within her influence to take personal responsibility and always look for better and more efficient ways to do things. She consistently acts with integrity and puts the interests of the TCCI and its member first, every time.
Colleen is a respected member of both the TCCI team and the Tasmanian business community more broadly. She is a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Director’s course, a long-standing member of the Tasmanian Training Agreements Committee and also holds a number of diploma level qualifications in leadership and project management. In 2017 Colleen completed an accreditation program to better understand individual communication styles, motivation and how to develop and use emotional intelligence in the workplace. Colleen actively seeks opportunities to improve her own knowledge and that of the team for the benefit of the organisation and the Tasmanian business community.
Colleen is responsible for the day to day operations of the TCCI including employee management, overseeing the financial operations and ensuring TCCI led projects are running on time and on budget whilst delivering on the outputs and outcomes. Motivated by identifying and solving problems and challenges, Colleen enjoys seeing issues through to resolution as well as identifying and realising opportunities for the TCCI. The Local Jobs Program is a recent example of where TCCI was presented with an opportunity that required action within a short time period, Colleen was able to re-prioritise and delegate tasks in order to realise this opportunity for the organisation. Colleen makes decisions in the context of TCCI’s strategic objectives and actively seeks information to ensure the course of action chosen is a considered one. Her unrelenting focus on high level service has resulted in strong membership growth and retention for the TCCI as well as a committed and high performing team who are dedicated to excellence in all that they do.
