With a strong personal sense of community, a career background in technology and family links to the media, David Porter is well qualified to take on the role as the Eden Magnet’s sales executive. 

Mr Porter – who was born in Bega and went to school in Sydney before taking on his first job selling computer software – joined Fairfax Media three weeks ago,

His career has included stints with the “legends” in computer technology, including Commodore, Nokia and Microsoft. He worked in Asia for 20 years with companies including iPrimus and Tata Communications.

Mr Porter also threw his hat in the ring as a candidate in last year’s Bega Valley Shire Council elections.

His father, Lawrence Porter, worked at 2BE radio station in the 1950s and 1960s.

Fish and chips at Eden’s lookout, the town’s down to earth residents, and the excitement surrounding the port redevelopment and tourism industry are high on his agenda.
