Profile and contact

John FrogleyCr John Frogley


I am married to Merry and we have raised three sons together and lived in St Peters for over 33 years. I value the strong sense of community in our City, its built heritage and cosmopolitan character and have sought to contribute to its ongoing success as a Ward Councillor.

First elected as a Councillor in 2006 I am currently a member of the Development Assessment Panel. I am also currently an elected Trustee, Deputy Chairman and Chairman of the Audit Committee of the Local Government Finance Authority.

After graduating with a degree in Economics from the University of Adelaide and qualifying as a Chartered Accountant (CA), I worked for five years in Vancouver and Montreal with a major CA firm before returning to Australia. For the following 26 years I held various senior executive positions with economic and business development agencies of the South Australian Government.  During this time I was appointed as a Director or Trustee of a number of substantial enterprises including an ASX listed company. For many years until recently retiring I was a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

My personal interests include golf (past Captain, Kooyonga Golf Club), music, bushwalking, bridge and food and wine (Member, Norwood Beefsteak and Burgundy Club). Previous community involvements include membership of the St Peters Residents Association and coaching junior football, cricket and baseball.
