Shepparton’s Andrew Fairley has been appointed to the Tourism Australia board of directors.
Mr Fairley has a distinguished association with ecotourism, conservation, parks and resort management and has significant international tourism experience.
He is a Parks Victoria director, the chairman of Equisuper and a fellow of the Australian Institute of Superannuation Trustees and the Australian Institute of Company Directors. He is also involved in several charities, including the Sir Andrew and Lady Fairley Foundation, the national Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education and the Centre for Eye Research Australia.
Federal Trade and Investment Minister Andrew Robb yesterday said he looked forward to working with Mr Fairley and his fellow appointments, Anna Guillan and Tony South.
‘‘Tourism Australia promotes our compelling tourism story to the world through leading campaigns such as There’s Nothing Like Australia and its food and wine campaign Restaurant Australia,’’ Mr Robb said. ‘‘I am confident the new board members will build on this position of strength and support the tourism industry to reach its ambitious Tourism 2020 target of doubling overnight visitor expenditure to more than $115 billion by the end of the decade.’’
Tourism Australia chairman Geoff Dixon said Mr Fairley would bring a wealth of experience in travel, tourism and hospitality that would further strengthen the Tourism Australia board and help guide the organisation in the future.
