Lori Modde – Chief Executive Officer

Lori Modde comes from a diverse background that connects destinations, communities and economic development opportunities. Originally from the hotel industry where the principles of customer centricity where learnt and developed. This led her into community development and economic development areas in the field of tourism. Commencing Lorick Management Lori discovered the opportunities that industry associations bring to both areas through collective voice and action. This is an area she held dear to her spirit as she accomplished award winning projects, collaborations and economic development initiatives. Seeking more skills she took a side road into Local Government and learnt about the many opportunities that can be led and facilitated by this sector. Pursuing further education, Lori completed a Diploma in Business Governance in Not for Profits, A Women in Leadership Executive Program and a Masters in Business Administration. Lori comes to Outdoors NSW from Sydney Olympic Park Authority where the appreciation of the Outdoors in education, recreation and therapy is very well understood. Lori hopes to collide both her worlds in this position; the knowledge, understanding and potential that Industry Associations can provide to their communities of interest with the customer centricity focus that provide destination and business prosperity.

(The Executive Office is contracted to Lorick Management Pty Ltd; Lori Modde is the Managing Director and holds the position of CEO for Outdoors NSW.)
