During the Renaissance period, it wasn’t enough to master only one facet of life. Nino DiMarco is a great example of a “Renaissance man”, travelling to America to study and then work as a professional Jazz drummer, before moving into a corporate career firstly in the banking industry and in recent years as CEO of a major not for profit. Along the way he completed an Economics degree and became a property developer. This is a great story of a man from humble beginnings as the son of new immigrants to Australia, who has gone on to have an amazingly diverse and interesting career.
Nino Di Marco is the former CEO of the Royal Flying Doctor Service (QLD Section) and has over 20-years’ experience in leadership and management. As part of his role within the RFDS, he also sits on the National Executive of the RFDS National Organisation.
He is responsible for the strategic direction of the RFDS in Qld with 9 bases, 400 employees, turnover of $95m, and a balance sheet of $120m.
