Show has new com­mer­cial man­ager

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Quick News -

THE Royal Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety (RAS) has re­cruited Mark Zan­dans as its new com­mer­cial man­ager.

With a his­tory of cor­po­rate, gov­ern­ment and not-for-profit sec­tors, Mr Zan­dans is re­spon­si­ble for all venue and event man­age­ment, in­clud­ing over­see­ing this year’s Perth Royal Show.

Mr Zan­dans said it would be a great op­por­tu­nity to build the event that at­tracts more than 450,000 visi­tors each year.

“It is some­thing families and kids look for­ward to ev­ery year,” he said.

As man­ager Mr Zan­dans said his pri­mary fo­cus would be to con­nect bet­ter with the com­mu­nity.

“A sig­nif­i­cant por­tion of my role is main­tain­ing our roots,” he said.

He would play a role in the re­cently an­nounced con­cept plan for the Clare­mont Show­ground, in­clud­ing its de­sign and what op­por­tu­ni­ties would ex­ist when de­liv­er­ing their events.

“It is a very ex­cit­ing time for this area in gen­eral,” he said.

“How­ever, we need to make sure that we pro­vide for our whole com­mu­nity – not only with Clare­mont, but with the wider com­mu­nity of Western Aus­tralia.”

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Peter Cooper said Mr Zan­dans would con­trib­ute to the or­gan­i­sa­tion with his wide ex­pe­ri­ence over­see­ing ma­jor in­ter­na­tional sport­ing and en­ter­tain­ment events.
