In the final quarter for 2016 the Australian Chamber hosted several major events to connect our members with leading figures in business, politics, government and media.
In September 2016 the Australian Chamber sought to put into action the policies in our Top 10 in 10 election manifesto to improve Australia’s international competitiveness. To achieve results on these policies we are continuing our public advocacy while seeking to connect with key members of parliament.
The Australian Chamber welcomed James Pearson as Chief Executive Officer in the second quarter of 2016.
Kate Carnell departed as CEO after nearly two years with the Australian Chamber. The Board appointed Jenny Lambert to serve as Acting CEO, while they carried out a recruitment process to select a permanent replacement. James Pearson has been appointed as the Australian Chamber’s new CEO, starting in April.
