AUSTRALIA - After five years at the helm of the Melbourne Convention and Visitors Bureau (MCVB), Sandra Chipchase is stepping down as CEO.

Chairman of the MCVB, Chris Barlow, said he had officially accepted the resignation of Chipchase. “Sandra has given us five years of exceptional serviceand we should all be pleased for her as she takes the next big step in her career,” he added.

In April, the MCVB was recognised with two national Meetings and Events Australia Hall of Fame inductions for Destination Marketing Organisation and Exhibition of the Year for the Asia-Pacific Incentives and Meetings Expo (AIME). Chipchase was also acknowledged with the National MEA Outstanding Contribution to Industry Award at the same event.
 
Tourism and Major Events Minister Louise Asher said: “Over the last five years, Sandra has developed a strong Business Events platform for Melbourne and has delivered some of the largest Business Events for Victoria. A key component to Sandra’s vision was enhancing Melbourne’s reputation as a Business Events destination and its partnership with the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.”
 
Barlow said the board has commenced the recruitment process for the next CEO and is working with Chipchase on the implementation of a transition plan prior to her departure.
