I am pleased to advise that Dianne Smith will return to her role as Chief Executive of VTIC after undertaking a six month secondment as Regional Director at Visit Victoria, at the invitation of the Hon. John Eren MP, Minister for Tourism and Major Events. Dianne has given a valuable contribution to the development and growth of Victoria’s visitor economy and we look forward to welcoming her back. Dianne will return to VTIC at the beginning of April.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Erin Joyce on her efforts as Acting Chief Executive during this time, and thank her for the expertise and dedication she has shown to the VTIC team, advocacy works, delivery of key programs and events and to industry. It has been a pleasure working alongside her during this period.
On behalf of VTIC and myself, we look forward continuing our work with industry and all levels of government to ensure optimal results for our fundamental business sector and economic pillar.
