Echelon Adelaide

Our Community

From 1984 to 1991 Gerry Karidis AM was a board member of the South Australian Housing Trust (SAHT), imparting his long-held vision for modern urban housing — ensuring (in the interests of a ‘fair go’) that the SAHT did not abandon its commitment to provide housing for Adelaide’s lower socio-economic groups.

Mr Karidis has also been actively involved in nurturing the establishment and growth of the Greek Community of Adelaide and Australia — demonstrated by his assistance in creating and developing schools, community facilities, churches and aged care for his Community.

As a former Chairman of the South West Community Hospital, Mr Karidis spent considerable time talking to hospital staff. From cleaners to administrators and surgeons, in order to gain an understanding of how to best serve the ‘health’ community. Consequently, Mr Karidis’ involvement with the hospital saw the introduction of innovative changes that are still in use today.

Mr Karidis is a also patron of the Art Gallery of South Australia a member of the Housing Industry Association and the Property Council of Australia, while he also contributed quite substantially to the War Memorial upgrades in both Canberra and Adelaide.
