Magdaline is the newest member of the HACCI-NT board and has impressed with her efficiency in the implementation of a Territory specific manifesto and creative plan. This is no surprise given that she has more than 15 years’ experience in the marketing and printing industry. In case you are wondering about her Hellenic origins, look no further than her maiden name, which is Papandonakis.
Magdaline is CEO of Colemans Printing, a 65-year-old family owned Printing Company which has innovated and diversified into signage, billboards and creative services over the past five years. She is one of the few private directors within The Clemenger BBDO Group, which is Australasia’s largest, most successful marketing communications company through Colemans’ joint venture, Marketforce North.
She has previously held roles in corporate governance and human resource management in listed public information technology and communications companies. Magdaline has also been a member of the Ministerial Liaison Committee for Information Technology and Communications in the NT.
Away from work, Magdaline contributes to her local community as a founding Board Member of the Starlight Children’s Foundations Star Ball Darwin NT. In 2018, she commenced a community development role as a qualified sports trainer for the St Mary’s Football Club.
Magdaline is modest in all her achievements and fits extremely well in to the HACCI-NT team, which stems from her leadership experience as a NT Netball and NT Institute of Sport Netball Captain.
Magdaline holds post graduate qualifications in Human Resource Management and is a member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
