Hon Kevin Foley


The Hon. Kevin Foley retired from South Australian Politics in 2011 following a decade of loyal service.

A prominent figure in State politics, Kevin acted as the Treasurer and Deputy Premier of South Australia from 2002-2011. During his tenure Kevin played a crucial role in restoring the Government’s finances, most notably through regaining and retaining a AAA credit rating.

Kevin’s leadership and business skills were pivotal in winning significant defence contracts and during Olympic Dam negotiations with BHP Billiton. His decade-long contribution to state politics cemented him as the longest-serving Deputy Premier of South Australia.
Since his political retirement, Kevin has utilised his political experience as an independent business consultant opening Foley Advisory in 2012. Kevin provides clients with valuable insight and strategic counsel to navigate the current political and corporate climate.

Kevin works closely with Bespoke Approach partners, Alexander Downer,
