Ruth Swinton is the Business Manager at 89 Degrees East.
Ruth has worked as a paralegal in Sydney, before moving to Melbourne where she joined a national market research company, managing a number of projects for both the public and corporate sector.
Following the need for a sea change, Ruth moved with her family to Byron Bay where she worked as a Financial Controller for a leading backpacker travel company. This relationship has given her the ability to develop and maintain relationships at all levels, and to effectively liaise and negotiate with all stakeholders to deliver its organisational goals.
Ruth believes in focusing her efforts on achieving high-level customer service, on time delivery and exceeding expectations.
When not working, Ruth volunteers for several charities, including the Riding for the Disabled (NSW) where she is passionate about enriching the lives of children and adults living with physical and/or mental disabilities.
