Celebrating 40 Years!

Below is the story of our beginnings by Kelvin Dickens our Founder.

New CCI Business Development Manager Skye Hutchins

P:(08) 83618842

I first started in the healthcare industry working within a nursing home, which then bought me into healthcare sales.
I have worked with two major suppliers in Adelaide over the last few years, which has given me great experience and product knowledge of the goods and services that CCI contracts can provide.
Over the coming weeks, I would love to meet with CCI member’s, and to see if there is any way that I can be of assistance to you as an additional benefit to your membership.
