New Tourism Australia managing director John O’Sullivan
Transport and Tourism Forum (TTF) chief executive Ken Morrison said, “John O’Sullivan has a great background in tourism and major events in both the public and private sectors and is well-known and respected in the tourism industry.
“He brings more than two decades of experience to the role and will be able to ensure that Tourism Australia’s success in promoting Australia as a must-see destination around the world continues.
“The industry welcomes John’s appointment and looks forward to him building on Andrew McEvoy’s legacy, which has not only seen Tourism Australia recognised globally with a raft of international awards and has also seen growth in international arrivals to Australia over the past few years despite challenging global conditions.
“John understands the value of tourism and its potential to help the Australian economy as the mining investment boom slows and we are looking forward to working with John when he takes up the role at the end of March.”
John O’Sullivan is currently a member of the Tourism & Transport Forum’s National Advisory Board, a position from which he will step down next week.
