he search for the highly coveted role of Chief Executive Officer of the Australian Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA) is underway. The AFTA Board of Directors has appointed a subcommittee to manage the process and they have also named two non-exclusive search agencies Brown & Chase Talent Acquisition & Advisory and Temple Executive Search.

The AFTA Board are united in their vision to appoint an experienced and strategic minded business leader who can appropriately represent and advocate on behalf of our diverse travel sector.

The incoming CEO will have a major role in engaging and advocating at a strategic policy level with state and federal governments to ensure that AFTA member interests are well represented.

AFTA Chair, Tom Manwaring said, “The Board is looking for a skilled business leader who can develop effective and influential relationships with key stakeholders across government, members, suppliers, media and leaders of allied industry bodies.”

“We are cognisant of the fact that the post-COVID travel landscape is going to be very different and we are recruiting with this in mind. The incoming CEO will be someone who can develop high quality business strategies that address the needs of AFTA’s membership base, which consists of some 3,000 travel agency businesses, from large corporations through to the small independent travel business, as well as build the framework for a strong and resilient industry post COVID-19,” said Manwaring.

“The CEO will also be responsible for leading the dedicated professional team of 9 at AFTA’s head office in Sydney. Until such time as we appoint a suitably qualified CEO, the AFTA team remains robust, well connected and committed,” concluded Manwaring.
