Tourism Australia: New Managing Director Announced


New Managing Director Announced

The Chairman of Tourism Australia, Tim Fischer, has announced that Geoff Buckley has been appointed by the Board of Tourism Australia as Managing Director, and will take up the position forthwith.

“This appointment follows a lengthy process by the Board of Tourism Australia involving careful consideration of the very strong field of candidates from within Tourism Australia and also those external to Tourism Australia,” Mr Fischer said.

“With more than 20 years of experience in tourism and his strong research background, Geoff was the outstanding candidate to lead Tourism Australia.

“The Board of Tourism Australia was impressed with his professionalism, strategic thinking and attention to detail as the Acting Managing Director.

“As Director of Strategy and Research at Tourism Australia, Geoff played a pivotal role in the development of our strategic plan. He has also held senior positions with Tourism NSW and with the Sydney Olympic Park Authority," Mr Fischer said.

“This is all about strong research driven consolidation, along with open communication and comprehensive consultation with industry, and I have every confidence Geoff will be a very good team player. Today he hits the ground running in Tokyo promoting Australian tourism in one of our key markets.”

Mr Fischer added the Board would have a two day meeting early next month, including a major strategy session to ensure momentum builds for a flying start for 2007.
