We are a small organisation making big changes in the City of Port Phillip. We can be considered a pilot project and an example of how society can be more socially and materially inclusive of all its members .

Apart from Fr Bob who doesn't seem to have an off button and is still working in his 80's, we have 3 full time and 2 part time staff. Most of the heavy lifting and frontline work is done by our dedicated and exceptional volunteers.

Adrian Kinderis

Adrian Kinderis co-founded the Bombora Technologies group of companies
(formerly AusRegistry Group) in 1999 and grew the business from a small
Melbourne start-up to a thriving global organisation. 

Under his leadership as Chief Executive Officer, the Group created a strong
reputation as the specialists in the development of high-volume, complex,
transaction-based Internet systems. His relentless pursuit of success helped
gain the company an enviable position within the industry.

An end result of this success was the acquisition of Bombora Technologies in
July 2015 by US technology company Neustar. The acquisition helped establish
Neustar as the world's largest provider of domain name registry services.

He has given keynote speeches and presentations at business conferences such
as iStrategy, the CIO Summit, AdTech, DomainFest, IPTA, iMedia and the
Internet Show. This is on top of his media commentary work which has seen
Adrian appear on Bloomberg Television, Sky News (UK and Australia), Channel
NewsAsia and Network Ten.

In April 2018, utilising his previous experience, Adrian Kinderis launched
MadBarry Investments, a small investment firm that looks to invest in
boutique opportunities. With a number of key investments already underway,
this vehicle allows Adrian to continue to develop his entrepreneurial and
start up skills.

In August 2018, Adrian Kinderis Co-Founded Rabado Hospitality.

In May 2019, Adrian Kinderis joined the Board of the Father Bob McGuire
