ACA’s new chair
THE Australian Cruise Association appointed Grant Gilfillan, ceo of the Port Authority of NSW, as chair during its AGM on Fri.
Gilfillan takes over from Stephen Bradford, who stepped down from the role at the expiry of his term after serving for three years.
CEO Jill Abel said with ACA’s focus “being firmly on destination development including all important infrastructure needs, the timing is perfect for Grant to continue the great work undertaken by Stephen and the management committee”.
Jay McKenzie of Bob Wood Cruises was also appointed to the committee and Julie O’Brien from Tourism & Events Queensland continues in her role as deputy chair of the Australian Cruise Association.
