Meet the speaker

The Hon. Kyam Maher
SA Minister for Manufacturing and Innovation

Kyam grew up in country South Australia, initially in Littlehampton in the Adelaide Hills and then in Mt Gambier in the South East of the State. He graduated from Adelaide University with Law and Economics degrees before practicing law for the Crown Solicitor’s Office in South Australia.

When Labor won State Government in 2002, Kyam took on the role of Chief of Staff to Minister Terry Roberts who held the portfolios of Regional Affairs, Aboriginal Affairs and Correctional Services. Kyam then went on to serve as the State Secretary of the Labor Party in South Australia before entering the Legislative Council in 2012.

Upon the re-election of the Labor Government in 2014 Kyam took on the role of Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Agriculture, Food and Fisheries. As of February 2015 he was elevated to the Cabinet and is currently the Minister for Manufacturing and Innovation, Automotive Transformation, Employment and Aboriginal Affairs and Reconciliation in the South Australian Government.

Kyam is particularly passionate about ensuring that all South Australians are afforded the dignity that good, meaningful jobs provide, and that all South Australians are able to share in the opportunities and benefits this State offers. He has spoken on a wide range of issues including Aboriginal Affairs, equality, the importance of science in society, and the challenges facing regional and country communities.
