Graham Wright will take over as chair of the Australian Marketing Institute, as his predecessor Lee Tonitto is awarded life membership.
Wright, who has a strong background in government marketing, announced a new operating model for the AMI as he accepted the role.
“The board and management have identified five key strategic pillars for specific attention: member engagement; professional advancement; a strong and persuasive voice for the profession; influential thought leadership and a new governance structure.”
A special general meeting will be held on February 28 next year to discuss the proposed new structure.
“The board has paid tribute to Lee by conferring Life Membership,” Wright added.
