Inland NSW has appointed two new independent directors to its Board; principal lawyer Alyssa Antcliffe and researcher and marketing expert Bronwyn White.
As the Regional Tourism Organisation (RTO) representing almost 40% of regional NSW, strong industry and commercial expertise on Inland NSW’s Board drives its capacity to deliver its strategy of doubling overnight visitation expenditure by 2020.
Chair of Inland NSW, Rodger Powell, welcomed the two new recruits to the Board.
“I am delighted that Alyssa and Bronwyn have agreed to join the Inland NSW Board as independent directors,” said Powell.
“Both have close linkages to the Inland regions and add significant depth and diversity to our Board. Inland is committed to exceptional governance and to further improving our new RTO model. Independent and expert directors are a key element of that commitment.”
Principal of boutique law firm Antcliffes, Alyssa Antcliffe specialises in intellectual property, commercial, regulatory and planning law. The firm focuses on assisting businesses which want to create something with enduring value and growth through innovation.
“I look forward to contributing as a Board member of Inland NSW so that the vibrancy and delights of regional NSW that I came to know as a child and love as an adult can be enjoyed by both domestic city-based and overseas visitors alike, and which will in turn benefit those regional communities for a win-win result that benefits everyone concerned,” explained Antcliffe.
Director of MyTravelResearch.com, Bronwyn White has over 25 years’ experience in travel and tourism industry market research, sales and marketing, including previous roles with Qantas Airways and as Executive Officer for the New England North West RTO.
“I have had a long history and love of the region,” explained White. “My family is from Broken Hill; I was lucky to have the best job in the world as Regional Marketing Manager (Western Region) where I fell in love with the people and the landscape as an adult. It is a really special place to me. And with my tourism research and marketing specialisation, I am really delighted to have been asked to be on the Board of Inland NSW.”
