Sandra Chipchase has resigned as CEO of the Melbourne Convention + Visitors Bureau (MCVB) in Australia and will take a position as CEO of Destination NSW.
“Sandra has given us five years of exceptional service, and we should all be pleased for her as she takes the next big step in her career,” said Chris Barlow, MCVB chairman. “During her tenure, Sandra has achieved some outstanding results for Melbourne, the most recent of which were recognized in April with two national Meetings and Events Australia (MEA) Hall of Fame inductions for ‘Destination Marketing Organisation’ and ‘Exhibition of the Year’ for the Asia-Pacific Incentives and Meetings Expo (AIME). Sandra was also acknowledged with the National MEA Outstanding Contribution to Industry Award at the same event. On behalf of the Board, I thank Sandra for her tremendous contribution to Melbourne and Victoria and her assistance in effecting a smooth transition.”
Destination NSW is the state government's new events and tourism marketing authority for New South Wales.
