Goulburn River Valley Tourism is delighted to announce that Ms Annie Fletcher-Nicholls has been appointed as its new Chair.

Ms Fletcher-Nicholls has been an Independent Director of the Board since 2015 and was appointed Interim Chair in January 2017. Goulburn River Valley Tourism is pleased that she has now seen fit to take on the role on a permanent basis.

Ms Fletcher-Nicholls is an experienced company director, serving on the boards of government businesses, not-for-profit organisations and private SMEs. She is currently a Director of Docklands Studios Melbourne and is Chair of Seymour Health.

Her professional career saw her working at the highest level of corporate communications. As Managing Director of one of Australia’s largest public relations companies, owned by Clemenger Advertising, she lead a team of practitioners who provided advice to many of Australia’s leading corporations and public entities.

This in-depth understanding of strategic communications and marketing brings an important perspective to a board in an era where an organisation’s public profile is monitored by instant communications and a 24/7 news cycle.

Ms Fletcher-Nicholls, a resident of Kilmore, holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from ANU and is a Member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

I am sure you will join with me in welcoming Annie as the Chair of Goulburn River Valley Tourism.
