Former Executive GM International promoted to lead Tourism Australia.
Tourism Australia has confirmed the appointment of Phillipa Harrison as its new Managing Director.
The appointment follows several months of acting in the role, following the departure of John O’Sullivan earlier this year.
Tourism Australia Chairman, Bob East, said Harrison had been a stand-out candidate in the interview process.
“Phillipa has made an enormous contribution in her three years at Tourism Australia. She has great support in the industry and I am confident that Tourism Australia is in the best of hands,” he said.
She takes up her new role effective immediately.
