Ange Collins is a highly energised media professional with a particular passion for supporting businesses in Regional Australia. Ange grew up on a large pastoral station at the foot hills of the Grampians. The only daughter in a family full of boys, she says she learnt the value of strength, determination and commitment at a very early age. She credits her country upbringing to shaping her values and morals of today.
Within the media industry, Ange’s career has spanned over almost two decades working in commercial roles throughout Fairfax Media and NewsCorp before commencing her own stable of businesses in December 2016. Her down to earth approach and larger than life personality has seen her win the hearts of the business community of Far North Queensland in a very short time with the creation of locally owned and operated full service media agency, Adllins Media, and the creation of local B2B magazine and online platform, Connect Cairns.
Her media prowess coupled with her passion for regional business, has been a powerful formula for success. Ange is extremely dedicated to her media businesses and her goals and objectives align with supporting local SME’s to succeed with excellence at every level. As a former board member of the economic development group, the Mighty V group, representing Fairfax for South West Victoria, Ange Collins knows all too well the highs and lows businesses can face through tough economic times, drought, natural disasters and global unrest.
Ange says “I’ve learnt nothing comes easy in life, but if you buckle down and work hard anything is possible. It is my mission to give the business community of Far North Queensland a voice and support them through their business journey in the good times and bad, with effective solutions.”
