Two changes at VTIC – A message from Chair, Jeremy Johnson

08 /09/ 2015 Comments are Closed

I am pleased to advise that VTIC Chief Executive, Dianne Smith, will be undertaking a six month secondment in the newly created role of Regional Director at Visit Victoria, at the invitation of the Hon. John Eren MP, Minister for Tourism and Major Events.

This appointment is testament to the respect Ms Smith and VTIC have throughout the government and industry across the state, for their outstanding contribution to growing Victoria’s visitor economy.

It is also a welcome acknowledgement of the value of industry input in establishing Visit Victoria and driving greater visitor results in regional Victoria.

Ms Smith looks forward to working closely with the RTB network, relevant Visit Victoria team members, and setting up a powerful model for the exciting period ahead.

I am also pleased to announce that Ms Smith’s position at VITC will be filled for this period by an experienced tourism industry professional, Erin Joyce. Ms Joyce has more than 20 years industry experience, having held senior tourism marketing, development and management positions in private enterprise as well as government.

We are delighted that Ms Joyce is able to take over the role during this time. The VTIC team and I look forward to working with her.

These changes are effective from Monday 21 September 2015.

For further information, please refer to the Visit Victoria corporate website.

Office move

From Monday 5th October, the VTIC offices will relocate to level 3, 150 Collins Street, Melbourne.
Existing telephone and email contact details will remain the same.

For further information, please contact the team on 8662 5425 or info@vtic.com.au.
